We have adopted semi permanent water distribution
system for crops. The idea is to avoid un-necessary
flooding/run-off. The blue lines shown inside the farm area is
where the fixed (permanent) water pipeline has been deployed.
There are outlets at regular intervals of 200-250ft. To these
outlets we connect modular/movable pipes and raingun to cover
the entire area effectively.
The raingun is a very large
sprinkler with coverage area of 120ft radius. This is a very
effective solution to conserve water and minimize labour
especially when there is a need to water crops like groundnut.
