Jain Irrigation to execute Integrated Drip Irrigation project in Vidarbha region

This project will give benefit to more than 10,000 farmers., Jain Irrigation to do Integrated Drip Irrigation project in Vidarbha region:- Vidarbha region is known for its farmers’ distress over the last six decades. Many Irrigation projects were initiated, yet with limited reach. Backlog of Rainfed-farmers, to be covered under irrigation, kept enlarging. Source of water remained constant OR kept declining. Only way out was to create more water; this is accomplished by eliminating wastage of water. Using scientific and modern irrigation techniques:

  • Project Value Rs.239.17 Cr
  • Project is based on a pioneered concept of Jain Irrigation Systems Ltd. Jalgaon i.e. "RESOURCE TO ROOT"
  • More than 10,000 farmers and 20,748 acre command area covering 65 villages of Arvi Taluka of Wardha district of Maharashtra will be benefited from the project. Project shall be executed within 24 months.
  • Unique Fully Automated Irrigation Project entirely based on PMKSY guidelines with provision of complete piped Distribution Network (PDN) i.e. "HAR KHET KO PANI" and on farm Micro Irrigation System i.e "MORE CROP PER DROP" which ensures higher Productivity and Sustainable income for farmers.

The pioneers and leaders of Integrated Irrigation Solution, JAIN IRRIGATION has bagged order for prestigious Arvi Integrated Irrigation project through e-tendering process. The owner of the project is Vidarbha Irrigation Development Corporation Nagpur, Govt of Maharashtra.

Considering the limitation in the traditional irrigation projects, being land acquisition challenges and resistance from the farmers to accept open canal networks, the Lower Wardha Irrigation Project Division Wardha is implementing this project to improve Water Use Efficiency up to 90% (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 GoI under PMKSY.

In this project, water is proposed to be lifted from Lower Wardha Project reservoirs to each individual farmer’s field with on farm automated Micro Irrigation System. This EPC/turnkey contract involves following scope of work
