Rajasthan is western arid state of India covers 342200 km area. Agriculture is almost impossible in dry waterless and high Temperature during summers. Temperature reaches 49 0 C during summers. Drip irrigation, Sewage treatment plant (STP) Can provide water for growing trees, Forest and trees save from sand drift, forest provide timber, medicinal plants, fire wood, timber to build houses, more than 50,000 hacters deserts can be filled with plants. forests also create jobs. This gives sand particles clay coating and alters physical properties of sand and allow them to bind more water. This new technology Clay Nanoparticles Technology (CNT or LNC) changes desert soil into fertile soil in 24 hours. It also reduces water demand by 80%. CNT or LNC (Liquid Nano Clay) is capable of changing…. sand soil into larger yielding arable soil (Kristian Morten Olesen, Noeway, 2020).
