Water is becoming increasingly scarce worldwide limiting agricultural development in many developing and developed economies across the world and more than one-third of the world population would face absolute water scarcity by the year 2025. The growth rate of Indian population has pressurized the Indian agriculture to produce more and more to feed its 1.21 billion people with limited cultivable land of only 141 m ha where 62 m ha is only irrigated.Agriculture is in direct conflict with other sectors of water economy and environment. The water use efficiency in the agricultural sector, which still consumes over 80 per cent of water, is only in the range of 30-40 per cent in India, indicating that there is considerable scope for improving the water use efficiency. One of the strategies to manage water consumption in Indian agriculture is Micro-Irrigation(MI).Micro irrigation is having high potential for creating second green revolution in India which is today’s need of the hour as water – nature’s gift to mankind, is not limited and free forever.
