Community micro irrigation

Community micro irrigation is an innovative concept that involves the facilitation of micro irrigation technology through surface water and to the community of farmers at large. As a project-solution, it involves the integration of ‘Water-Conveyance’ with ‘On-Farm Productivity’. This integration results in considerable gains for farmers in the form of higher yield and output for the community of farmers, along with a better water-use efficiency.
The conventional model of drip irrigation has its own challenges. These include its almost negligible penetration in the surface water. Besides, the countless benefits that one reaps out of drip irrigation remain largely confined to the ground water. Moreover, factors such as water evaporation, uneven water distribution and the absence of a community-based approach towards agriculture result in low water-use efficiency levels.
Community micro irrigation works as a solution here! It helps leverage the benefits of drip irrigation to the surface water, and on the other hand, help overcome the limitations of canal/surface irrigation. It involves facilitation of water to the crop root zone in the command area, thus ensuring equal distribution of water, and helping farmers gain a higher yield. This, in turn, proves to be a truly integrated solution! In simpler words, community micro irrigation is a bridge that fills the gap between the potential created and the irrigation potential utilized.

Conventionally, canals have been one of the most important mediums of irrigation for agriculture in India. However, the drawback with canals is the en route evaporation of water, which prevents adequate supply of water to the crops, thus increasing the farmer’s dependencies on rain.

Community micro irrigation involves integration of farmers. This refers to differences between the area, crop, terrain, soil, and as micro irrigation is a relatively new concept in agriculture, it would require training, capacity building of all the associated farmers.

Implementation of community micro irrigation projects resolves the issue of canal irrigation like Unequitable distribution, low water use efficiency, uneven crop growth and yields, soil salinity and huge investment on land acquisition.

With the implementation of such schemes, farmers can get assured irrigation water and can double the net returns as compared to surface irrigation. After successful start of this project, socio economic status of all farmers will enhance. 

Netafim has restored faith in the hearts of farmers & promoted the government’s vision with its scientific approach & solution providing values.

Netafim have successfully implemented various projects in India, outside India and one of them is Ramthal community lift irrigation project having area of 11,700 ha and operating since 2017.
