Micro irrigation is the most advanced method of irrigation. Through this method water is irrigated through sprinklers, drippers, foggers and by other emitters on the surface or subsurface of the land. It is important to mention that drip irrigation system has lots of advantages over the conventional irrigation methods - water saving & higher yield, high quality & increased fruit size, is suitable for all types of soil, easy method of fertigation & chemigation and saves in labour & field preparation cost.

In the year 2015-16, the Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchai Yojana was launched by the Government of India to increase this irrigation system rapidly. Let me tell you that in Bihar, this irrigation method is being adopted in only 0.5 percent of the area. Agriculture Road Map 2017-22 aims to extend this irrigation method to at least 2 percent of the total cultivated area. The government and agriculture department believes that doing so will increase the production of vegetables as well as fruits in the state. Through this scheme, there is a provision to provide 90 percent subsidy under drip irrigation and 75 percent subsidy under sprinkler to all categories of farmers by providing additional top-up by the state government.
