Quality seeds play a major role, along with improved package of practices leading to enhanced productivity. Safe guarding seeds during initial stage of germination will give a special impetus for the seed to overcome the moisture stress condition and develop into a vigorous plant. In dryland agriculture, drought resistance of plant is one of the very important factor to get the higher yield. Though this is largely depends on genetic makeup of the variety, pre-sowing treatments like 'hardening' also practiced to defy the ill effects of drought on emergence and growth of crop.
