Modernize Agriculture: Drip Irrigation at Utopiaa Farm

This is a combination of both organic and scientific farming for faster growth and will be a cost-effective technique.

  • Soil testing
  • Newly developed seed helped in proficient crop growth.
  • Nature-friendly pesticides and repellents
  • Drip irrigation
  • Bhungroo technique
  • Rainwater harvesting
  • Plant hosting method
  • Solar electric fencing

Techniques Used

Soil testing:

  • To gain knowledge about the soil condition and how to improve it.
  • It is the first step in soil fertility management.
  • Minimise fertiliser expenditures.
  • Avoid over fertilisation.
  • Avoid soil degradation.

Stronger and more resistant pesticides.

  • Most preferred would be organic farming, for example, using neem leaf, onion and garlic spray, and eucalyptus oil.

Bhungroo technique:

  • It is an innovative water harvesting technique for irrigation introduced by Indian women farmers. It frees excess water from flood-prone and waterlogged farmland by drawing all the excess water underground and making the land accessible for farming.

Plants hosting method:

  • It is a method used to extract nutrients from the host plant of the parasitic plant.

Benefits of Smart Scientific Farming:

  • improves soil fertility.
  • Kills harmful pests.
  • Protects the crop from bad weather.
  • increases productivity.
  • Can grow in special environments (drought, cold weather).

Newly developed seed helped in proficient crop growth.

  • Better yield, pest resistance, drought tolerance, and herbicide tolerance.

Drip irrigation:

  • It is a type of micro-irrigation system that has the potential to save water and nutrients by allowing water to drip slowly to the roots of plants, either from above the soil surface or buried below the surface.

Rain water harvesting:

  • It is the collection and storage of rain rather than allowing it to run off. The harvested water can also be committed to long-term storage or groundwater recharge.

Solar electric fencing:

  • Safety and security for the crop
  • It works like an electric fence.
  • Highly reliable as it functions irrespective of grid failure.

  • There is no major harm to animals or humans.

  • Makes use of renewable solar energy.
