Abstract:
The Per Drop More Crop component of PMKSY mainly focuses on water use efficiency at farm level through Precision/ Micro Irrigation (Drip and Sprinkler Irrigation). Drip irrigation is an irrigation method saves to water and fertilizer. To evaluate impact of drip irrigation on chilli production a study was conducted in Dhar district was Madhya Pradesh. 60 chilli growers (48 adopted and 12 non- adopted) were selected for the study. The study reveal that the yield of green chilli was found to be increased 54.24 per cent on an average green chilli growers farm in drip irrigation (182q/ha) over the surface method of irrigation (118q/ha) with the result of that gross return was also increase 88.15 per cent, from cultivation of green chilli The net return, family labour income, farm investment income and farm business income was also found to be increased 105.14, 86.68, 103.84, and 93.41 per cent respectively due to drip as compared to surface method irrigation. On investment of Re. 1.00 an average green chilli grower was found to be obtained 3.65 per cent more in drip (Rs. 1.42) as compared to surface method (Rs. 1.37) of irrigation. The majority of respondents were found to the faced several constraints in adoption of drip method of irrigation of cultivation of green chilli viz. more fragmentation of land (64%), damage of tubes of drip irrigation by wild animals (62%), more expensive, despite the subsidy (58%), difficulty in obtaining government subsidy & support (56%) and poor quality of drip irrigation equipment (55%).
