Micro Irrigation Systems, i.e. the systems in which water is directly applied to the root zone of the plants, were introduced mainly to prevent the excessive wastage of water in the conventional systems of irrigation, like flood irrigation. But reducing the water consumption is not the only benefit that the micro irrigation systems provide. Apart from this, the micro irrigation systems helps to reduce the amount of inputs used, the electricity consumption, fertilizer use, and labor requirement. Also, the micro irrigation systems are known to help increase the yield of the land, i.e. the same land can provide higher yields if micro irrigation systems are used, as compared to the flood irrigation techniques.

On the back of the benefits provided by the micro irrigation systems, the India market for micro irrigation has been developing at a fast rate. Micro irrigation systems are mainly of two types, drip and sprinkler irrigation systems. The water consumption level is quite low in drip irrigation as compared to the sprinkler irrigation method, which is why the share of drip irrigation is constantly on rise in the Indian markets, but still the share of drip irrigation is less than READ MORE >
