Netafim India has launched a portable drip kit – an all-in-one irrigation solution they claim is easy to install and comes at an affordable price. The kit is designed for small farmers with farmland up to one acre.

Through the launch of the portable drip kit, Netafim India aims to cover 10,000 hectares of land under irrigation and reach 25,000 farmers across the country in the coming year. In Madhya Pradesh, the company intends to reach an additional five percent of the farmer community and cover ~ 2,000 hectares of marginal farmland under drip irrigation.
