Agriculture and Farmers’ Welfare Minister, Mr. O.P. Dhankar inspected the Micro Irrigation Pilot Project in Amadalpur village of Jhajjar today and called upon the farmers to cooperate to make this important project successful.

Issuing directions to the Chief Engineer of Canal Area Development Authority (CADA) in Amadalpur, the Minister said that untill the farmers have their own equipment for micro irrigation, the Irrigation Department should get done irrigation through their rain gun. Apart from this, arrangement would be made to provide sprinkler system to the farmers on subsidy. He said that the irrigation work of upcoming Kharif and Rabi crops should be completed with this project in the prescribed area.
