Micro irrigation, also known as low volume irrigation is an advanced irrigation system through which water is given at short intervals through specially constructed pipes in the root zone of the plant. And the best part about this is, 60 percent less water is consumed in this as compared to the traditional irrigation system.  

Under this, drip irrigation system, sprinkler irrigation system, and rain-gun irrigation techniques are used. In this, there are water distribution lines and similar control head systems, and fertilizer tanks.  

Advantages of Micro Irrigation System 

  • If fertilizer is treated by adopting this irrigation system, it saves around 25-30 percent fertilizer. 

  • This irrigation system increases the productivity of the crop by 40 to 50 percent and the quality of the product is also high. 

  • This irrigation system also reduces the weed congestion, due to which cost of workers is also reduced and, diseases in plants are also reduced. 

What is Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchayee Yojana?

To promote this irrigation system, in the year 2015-16,the Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchayee Yojana has been started by the government of India. Talking about the present condition, in Bihar, this irrigation system is adopted in about 0.5 percent of the total area covered under farming. The agriculture road map 2017-22 aims to establish this system in at least 2 percent of the total area covered so as to increase the productivity and production of vegetables and fruits in Bihar.

Under this scheme, state government is providing additional top-up to the farmers. There is a provision to provide 90 percent subsidy to all categories of farmers under drip system and 75 percent under sprinkler system.
