    This study warns that indiscriminate use of natural resources, increased biotic interference and intensified use of land have adverse effects on ecological balance and environment which is threatening the accomplishment of sustainable development of agriculture. Against this scenario, this study evaluates the Andhra Pradesh Participatory Tribal Development Project (APPTDP) implemented for a period of eight years, i.e., from the year 1995-96 to 2002-03. It is obvious from this study that the programs of natural resource development like minor irrigation tanks/small kuntas; soil, water and moisture conservation works; horticulture and non-timber forest produce species; and arable crop development schemes in tribal areas have improved their participatory levels on conservation of resources. Further, this study finds that these programs have a negative impact on the growth of total cropped area as they keep their uneconomical lands under fallow and substitute their income through wage employment. However, this study concludes that these programs have increased the land productivity for the present and also help in the growth of sustainable development of agriculture in future.
