  • To conserve scarce resources such as Water and Electricity.
  • To extend the benefits of irrigated agriculture to more people with the available water.
  • To facilitate better crop management through Fertigation and Chemigation.

Principles of Micro Irrigation?

  • Water is applied directly to the root zone of the plants.
  • Water is applied at frequent intervals at precise quantities based on Crop Water Requirements.
  • Water is applied through a low-pressure pipe network comprising Mains, Submains, Laterals and Emitting Devices

Advantages of Micro Irrigation

  • Crop Yield Enhancement
  • Saving in Irrigation Water
  • Saving in Energy in pumping
  • Savings in Fertilizer consumption
  • Quality Improvement of Produce
  • Improved Pest & Disease Control
Micro Irrigation
  • Improves Soil Health
