KOCHI, 12 March 2019: The drip irrigation kit—IrrigateEasy— developed by Ernakulam Krishi Vigyan Kendra (KVK) of the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI) is ready for sale at its sales counter at CMFRI.

The KVK introduced the kit to support those struggling to go ahead with the homestead farming owing to scarcity of water during the hot summer season.

The kit would be highly useful in vegetable gardening, for which summer is the ideal season in Kerala’s conditions if irrigation is ensured, said Dr Shinoj Subramannian, Senior Scientist and Head of KVK.

“Using of the kit can save water usage for farming up to 60 per cent. The kit that can irrigate one cent area or up to 80 grow bags is priced Rs.450”, Dr Subramannian said.

Organic manure, organic pesticides and other products useful in vegetable farming are also available at the counter.
