Planning and executing an irrigation/ agricultural project is a complex and multi-faceted activity. It is not possible for an individual to manage everything single-handedly. Hence, it is imperative that you choose and right agricultural and irrigation experts for assistance and expert consultation on every minute detail of the project.
We proudly call ourselves to be the comprehensive partners of farmers across the world, as we help them manage the project right from its inception to operations. We’ve got over 50 years of experience in project management for various aspects of farming including irrigation, the technical know-how, designing, development and executing the entire project. Regardless of your location, crop and the weather conditions, we’ll ensure that you achieve the highest levels of efficiencies, quality and make farming a profitable venture for you!
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.To know more
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.To know more
