Micro Irrigation Division:

The serious challenge to mankind in the 21st century is the lack of fresh water. Climate change, Pollution, and Population growth, are all accelerating, and the cumulative effect would be to bring about drastic decline in availability of water in the coming years. Agriculture alone consumes 60% of today’s fresh water and it is imperative that saving of water should be a paramount importance. The answer to wastage of water in agriculture is Micro Irrigation.

Nagarjuna Micro Irrigation business was started in the year 1993 to address the irrigation problems of farmers living in water and energy scarce regions and also in regions where water, energy and agricultural input (labor, nutrition and plant protection) supplies are expensive. Since then, Nagarjuna has accumulated a depth of agronomic knowledge that enables it to respond to the specific needs of a crop and the grower with exactly the right product and service solution.
