Aries agro & Drip System_BizDom_2ndNov2012


Published on

Drip Irrigation is a cheap, efficient and planned process that can bring the next Green revolution in the country.

Its a potential efficient way of irrigation for the crops.It directs the water directly to the plant's root system. As it allows direct transmission of the water, it can be used in some cases to mix fertilizers and nutrients with the water that can be directly supplied to the root system of the plants.

Saves the water as the consumption decreases by 30% to 50%.
Reduces the problem of salinization and water-logging.

But its a bit expensive and there is an issue of clogging attached to it.

Aries agro & Drip System_BizDom_2ndNov2012

  2. 2. About Aries Agro & Irrigation Started using drip irrigation system 10 years back after getting the knowhow from Israel. Mainly used for the cultivation of potatoes and bananas. Along with that it is sometimes used for capsicum and tomato. It is a manual and planned irrigation process that saves water where water is mixed with fertilizers first and then supplied to roots of the plants drop by drop at regular intervals.
  3. 3. Targeted Sector Vegetable Growers Small households Small-plot farmers Horticulture enthusiast
  4. 4. Development Imperative Potential efficient way of irrigation for vegetables and fruits. Better use of scarce water resources. Better than field irrigation as fertilizers and nutrients can be mixed with the water and subsequently can be transferred to the plant’s root system.
  5. 5. Benefits & Solutions Provided Saves water to a large extent. Manual and planned process. Direct transmission of water to plant’s root system. Reduces the problems of salinization and waterlogging.
  6. 6. Scalability Drip technology works best for large plots where harvesting can be controlled from single point and thus wastage of water can be controlled to a large extent. Efficiency can be scaled at large by combining adjoining farms. Since the system is not dependent on climate and the soil conditions, it can implemented easily across the regions.
  7. 7. Scalability(Cont..) According to Mr. Rakesh Gandhi, drip irrigation crop producer : “ India will have next phase of Green Revolution with drip irrigation only. No other system can be so efficient, cheap and as well as eco-friendly at the same time”.
  8. 8. Price-Performance Parameter Since crop/vegetables prices are not decided finally by the farmers, it’s largely decided by the traders and whole sellers in the markets so there is no impact as such on the price of the crops but farmers get benefitted by increased productivity and less water utilization. Moreover, the soil related issues of salinization and water-logging is overcome.
  9. 9. Social Equity Focus Previously only big-plots influential farmers can use the canal water or other expensive sources of irrigation. And the small-plot farmers were dependent on the rain water for irrigation. Now with the advent of this technology everyone is on the same platform and even small-plot farmers can produce the same good quality crops. Technology is open to all and readily available to everyone.
  10. 10. Costing & Economical Impact Installation cost for the system : 30k per bigha. 50% subsidy is provided by the government. 70% subsidy is provided if the irrigation systems are bought in groups. Cost of the system can be recovered in 2 years. Once installed, the system has a lifetime span of 10 years.
  11. 11. Costing and EconomicalImpact(Cont.) Small-plots farmers will be largely benefitted due to increased productivity and yields, better quality crops, shorter span time for maturity of the crops. Farmers implementing this technology started to export the potatoes to McCrain. These farmers also started to produce surplus amount of crops for consumption in other parts of the country.
  12. 12. Key Stakeholders Small Farmers:- - They get benefitted by increased productivity Laborers:- - Less work is required. Government:- - Responsible for electric supply. - Responsible for system awareness and subsidies. Society:- - Gets benefitted by better quality crops.
  13. 13. SWOT Analysis Strengths -> Quality and Quantity Increases. -> Reduced Labor cost. -> Environment friendly. -> Inter-cropping is possible. Weakness -> It is expensive. -> Requires clean water to prevent clogging. -> Requires physical human strength.
  14. 14. SWOT Analysis(Cont..) Opportunities -> Inter cropping. -> Multiple farms can be clubbed for better efficiency. -> Pan India scalability because of less dependence on climate. Threats -> Clogging -> Lots of vendors with the same technology.
