“The soil has become very dry, and the water table has dropped, making it very difficult for villagers on the dry side of the valley to maintain their crops and feed their livestock” -Lori McFadyen Indian Himalayan Field Experience

Issues: Because monsoon weather is unpredictable, producing steady crop yield through the dry season is difficult.
