Workshop conducted on Innovative Water Conservation Technologies for Enhancing Agriculture/Horticulture Productivity

In parts of Asia, low rainfall coupled with its unreliable distribution over space and time proved to be a constraint for sustaining livelihood systems that depend on agriculture and allied occupations. For addressing low rainfall-associated risks to agriculture and allied occupations, it is important to promote the advances in efficient water application technologies that could support agriculture in low rainfall zones. Water Conserving Rootzone Irrigation Technique (Root Irrigation) is one such technology developed by Dr. K.
