Author(s): Gyan Singh Purohit and SK Goyal
Abstract: Irrigation technology is changing fast from conventional methods to modern methods like MIS. Effective transfer of the scientific knowledge to the farmers is necessary. Compared to other forms of irrigation, micro irrigation plays an important role in the management of crops to obtain the maximum yield from lesser quantities of water, chemicals and fertilizer. The agricultural sector in India as the largest user of water faces the difficult challenge of increasing the efficiency of use of water to increase or maintain crop yield while at the same time allowing re-allocation of water from agriculture for rapidly growing urban, domestic and industrial uses. One of the technical methods available to improve the efficiency of water usage is the adoption of micro irrigation (MI) technologies to reduce losses during distribution and on-farm water management. The Present study was an attempt to precisely assess the sources of information, constraints, suggestions and perception attributed to the adoption of MIS.
