India is the largest freshwater user in the world, and the country’s total water use is greater than any other continent. The agricultural sector is the biggest user of water, followed by the domestic sector and the industrial sector. As water demand from cities and industries is increasing rapidly, pressure is also mounting on agriculture to enhance water efficiency. Traditional irrigation methods are no longer viable. Drip irrigation is a solution that reduces conveyance and distribution losses and allows higher water use efficiency.
