Kochi: To fight water scarcity in the scorching summer, Krishi Vigyan Kendra (KVK) in Ernakulam has developed a drip irrigation kit for watering the kitchen garden easily. The kit can be installed in simple steps.
The drip irrigation kit ‘Irrigateasy’ is sold for Rs 450 at Ernakulam KVK under the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI) in Kochi.
With the help of this kit, upto 80 growbags or one cent land can be irrigated and the use of water can be reduced upto 60 percent. This will help avoid wastage of water through irrigation during the summer.
High quality organic fertilizers, bio pesticides and growth boosters also are available at Krishi Vigyan Kendra.
