Rainfall runoff and erosion of surface soil remains a major factor for continued low productivity, more so in moisture limiting areas. The rapid decline in the quantity and quality of these resources had led to the concern for their management and conservation. Since 1984, Resource Conservation Technology has manufactured and distributed advanced technology for energy, water, and environmental conservation. Resource conservation is the planned management of natural resources to optimize their utility, efficient usage in their original application, reuse and recycling. The aim is to minimize the energy consumed and wastes generated in all stages from production through the life of the product right up to the final disposal. While maintaining and further enhancing productivity in the well endowed areas without adversely impacting resource base and environment is the key issue, reversing resource degradation process and enhancing soil quality appears a pre-requisite for achieving significant productivity gains in majority of moisture limiting areas.
