• More than 5,000 farmers and 16,536 acre command area of Jalgaon District of Maharashtra will be benefited from the project.
Jain Irrigation MIS division, pioneer and leader of micro irrigation business in India has bagged an order for prestigious Waghur canal integrated irrigation project through e-tendering process.

This project is worth Rs.125/- Cr. This project has planned to improve Water Use Efficiency up to 50- 55% (from existing 35%) in canal command areas by using Pressurized Piped Distribution Network (PDN) and on- farm Micro Irrigation (Drip/Sprinkler) system as per the mandate of Gol under Prime Minister Krishi Sinchai Yojana (PMKSY). The network will be FUTURE READY so that farmers can adopt Drip Irrigation system. The project will fulfill the national agenda 'HAR KHET KO PANI' and 'MORE CROP PER DROP'. This will ensure higher productivity and sustainable income for farmers.
"This is a unique project. JISL has already successfully commissioned many micro irrigation projects on turnkey basis in the state of Maharashtra, Karnataka, Gujarat, Himachal Pradesh and others. This addition to the already Strong order-book, re-emphasizes JISL’s leadership position, product offering and enlarged credentials for upcoming agricultural & irrigation infrastructure upgrade in the country."
