About ISDA

    The main objective of the Society shall be to provide an opportunity to agricultural scientists from different disciplines to address themselves to problems confronting Dryland Agriculture in a concerted and integrated manner and to express their views on the scientific basis of different aspects of national agricultural programmes and policies related to dryland Agriculture. Most of the existing professional scientific societies are specific discipline oriented and because of their specialized nature, an intergrated and multi-disciplinary approach is not encouraged. Indian Society of Dryland Agriculture would thus complement the role played by discipline-based bodies. The objectives of the society are :


  • To promote inter-disciplinary research in the field of dryland agriculture and transfer of technology for rural development
  • To provide a forum to members to express their views from a scientific view point, rationale and consequences of important national policies and programmes relating to dryland development
  • To collect, collate and disseminate information on integrated dryland agricultural production and management
  • To encourage and promote close association and collaboration among members belonging to various agricultural disciplines
  • To work in association and co-operation with other national and international societies/ organisations having complementary objectives
  • To undertake such other activities as may assist in or be necessary for the fulfillment of the above mentioned objectives
  • To publish a journal at regular interval
