The drip irrigation programme benefits from the Government of India’s subsidy programme

As well as the financial benefit to farmers, the instal¬lation of drip irrigation has a major positive environ¬mental impact.

By replacing flood irrigation, less fertiliser will be used, as it is fed directly into the drip system in a targeted way avoiding wash away of fertiliser into the local waterways.

The drip irrigation programme benefits from the Government of India’s subsidy programme, making it very cost effective for the farmers to access the programme.
