PCRWR to improve irrigation practices
April 27th, 2016 | Technology Times | No Comments
STAFF REPORT ISB: Pakistan Council of Research in Water Resources (PCRWR) has launched a weekly irrigation advisory service for its trainee farmers to help improve irrigation practices.
PCRWR, a department of Ministry of Science and Technology, has trained around 700 farmers in 2015 under a project called the Watershed Rehabilitation and Irrigation Improvement in Pakistan.
An inventory of trainee farmers was developed for follow-up to ultimately let them adopt informed and improved irrigation practices.
The service is a step towards achieving that objective which informs the farmers about their net weekly irrigation requirements considering evapotranspiration and precipitation.
