MICRO IRRIGATION SCHEME UNDER PRADHAN MANTRI KRISHI SINCHAYEE YOJANA (PMKSY)
Micro Irrigation technology plays a vital role in Agriculture in saving water and increasing productivity through effective utilization of every drop of water. Micro Irrigation has received considerable attention from farmers for its perceived ability to contribute significantly to groundwater resources development, agricultural productivity and economic growth. Drip Irrigation System is a life saver for many farmers in Tamil Nadu, by enhancing the yield and quality of the produce. Increasing water scarcity and limited availability of labour has paved the way for implementation of Micro Irrigation scheme. Micro Irrigation technology improves water use efficiency by 40% - 60% by precise water application. Through fertigation technology, fertilizers are directly applied to the root zone in drip irrigation, hence fertilizer use efficiency is also increased.
