Without a second thought it is - "Jain Drip Irrigation!" Which takes your farming towards a next level gaining of Better Yield Greater Profits!
But are all the farmers aware of this? Are we able to reach the potential farmers? Do farmers really benefit from this technology? Is Drip Irrigation the proven solution?
With every such question popping, we at Jain Irrigation have the SOLUTION!
The "Jeevika" Project implemented in Udhampur, Jammu & Kashmir, which was a thoughtful initiation taken towards targeting livelihood plans for small farmers through development of sustainable agriculture by the department.
Udhampur is a district which covers 81% rural area making it imperative to develop sustainable Agriculture and farm activities which are the mainstay of the people of the area. And with increase in the number of souls to be feeded, the need for growing more, indirectly increases which results in an increased requirement of more irrigation water.
We at Jain Irrigation are glad to share that it was an immense pleasure for us to take up the project "Jeevika" whose primary emphasis was around the principles of conservation, sustainability and equitable access of water.
With this objective, our aim was to provide the farmers of Udhampur with solution for effective management of limited availability of water for strengthening the livelihood of small marginal farmers through precision farming vegetable cultivation package loved by most farmers with small land holdings – "The Jain Dripkit" that fetches farmers gaining More Crop Per Drop.
The best thing about Udhampur is its mesmerizing nature’s blessings that possesses three Agro-Climatic regions viz Sub- Tropical, Intermediate and Temperate which favours the cultivation of different crops at different elevations.
