Virudunagar Woreda Administration has allocated 10 million Euros to irrigate 1,668 hectares of fruit and vegetables for 2021-22 years.
In a statement, Virudunagar Chairman J. According to Meghanath Reddy, small and renaissance farmers with up to 5 hectares of land will be given 100% subsidy irrigated land. Other farmers can subsidize up to 1.25 hectares under the Prime Minister’s Irrigation Program.
The statement said that Virununagar woreda is a rainy zone and it will help to use drip irrigation water to compensate for the shortage of water and to increase the agricultural cover and generate more income for the farmers.
Drip irrigation system reduces weed removal costs and shortens irrigation time for crops.
Vegetables and fruits grown using drip irrigation will be more physical and can earn more than a normal irrigation system, he said.
To obtain benefits, horticultural farmers should produce passport size photographs, Adhar copies, ration cards and soil and water inspection reports and certificates for small / marginal farmers in Tahsidar.
