Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchai Yojana (PMKSY):

Substantial dependency on rainfall makes cultivation in unirrigated areas at high risk, less productive profession. The vision of Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchayee Yojana (PMKSY) will be to ensure access to some means of protective irrigation to all agricultural farms in the country, to produce ‘per drop more crop’, thus bringing much desired rural prosperity .This new programme is introduced and implemented since 2015-16. Under this scheme, drip irrigation for wide space crops (i.e. M. Orange, Mango, Grapes etc.) and closed spaced crops(vegetable, spices etc.), Micro sprinkler system, Mini sprinkler system and Training are being provided to farmers. However, there is no new achievement under the scheme this year as fund is not yet available at hand.
