Micro Irrigation: Empowering Agriculture, One Drop at a Time

Uddipta Ghosh

Micro-irrigation, or drip and sprinkler systems, can help with issues like water shortages and greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture in the context of climate change. The agricultural production particularly the cereals have increased over the years almost in proportional to irrigation facility created and utilized. Over the last twelve five year plans during 1950-51 to 2017-18 the irrigation potential has been increased at the rate of about 342.30%. Agriculture sector alone uses about 80% of our usable water resources. This necessitates efficient use of water and nutrients to enhance crop productivity. To counter the deficit without missing the production targets, adoption of micro-irrigation system in India is being considered as a potential alternative.
