PRINCIPLES OF MICRO IRRIGATION? Water is applied directly to the root zone of the plants. Water is applied through a low-pressure pipe network comprising Mains. Submains. Laterals and Emitting Devices . Water is applied at frequent intervals at precise quantities based on Crop Water Requirements.

To extend the benefits of irrigated agriculture to more people with the available water. . Energy. To conserve scarce resources such as Water and Electricity. To improve use-efficiencies of Water. Nutrient and Human Effort in Agriculture.WHY MICRO IRRIGATION IS NECESSARY? To improve the productivity of irrigated land from the present low levels. To facilitate better crop management through Fertigation and Chemigation.
