Government Subsidies for Sustainable Irrigation Methods Boosts Uptake in Asia Pacific
Government encouragement for adoption of micro irrigation systems is a key factor behind the growth of micro irrigation systems market. The declining level of ground water has necessitated an urgent resolution for the problem such as adoption of micro irrigation. Micro irrigation is viable as it helps save 50-60% water than what is used in flow irrigation and other traditional methods of irrigation. Due to this, several governments are encouraging the use of micro irrigation and offering subsidy on the installation cost of micro irrigation systems. Several governments such as those of India, Norway, and Switzerland are also providing subsidies for micro irrigation systems. For example, in India, the state government of Tamil Nadu has announced 100% subsidy for small farmers adopting micro irrigation and 75% subsidy for other farmers.
