FAISALABAD: The agriculture experts have advised the growers to use the latest technology, including drip irrigation, as maximum production could achieve with the judicious use of water.

A spokesman of the Agriculture (Extension) Department said here Thursday that under this system, water is supplied to the roots of plants in the form of well-calculated and required drops which are enough to fulfill its water needs for its optimum growth. 

Explaining the benefits of this system, he said that this system helps the salts to move deep into the soil, which is easily absorbed from the roots of the plant. Responding to a question about the organization of training workshops for farmers, he said that it will play a major role in replacing flood irrigation systems, which was sheer wastage of water as compared to an efficient drip irrigation system.
