Few Options Of Jain Integrated Irrigation Solutions (JIIS)

Resource to Root Video JIIS Project FAQ's

"Resource to Root" ™ - A Revolutionary Concept

The Drip Irrigation concept pioneered by Jain in India is already addressing part of water woes faced by the country through savings up to 70 % of the water applied on farm thus improving ‘on farm water management‘ significantly. However, this does not address overall water conveyance and distribution efficiency & particularly in traditional (canal) system. Therefore, another pathbreaking approach has been pioneered by Jain called ‘‘Jain Integrated Irrigation Solutions’’ (JIIS).

Present Agriculture Scenario

India is a vast country and has approximately 17% of the total population of the globe. It was estimated that its population would be in the range of 1200 million in 2010, 1449 million in 2025 and 1751 million in 2050.* To feed such a vast population India needs to increase our food production substantially. That means one has to increase agricultural

Present Water Scenario

Water : Fresh water available in India (1908 BCM) is only approximately 4% of the total fresh water available in the world(37500 BCM). This is disproportionate to the population that India holds. The per capita availability of fresh water in India was 3100 cum in 1975 which has come down to 1900 cum in 2000 which will further go down to 1400 Cum in 2025.

Present Irrigation Scenario

It is a proven fact that the crop yields increase due to irrigation. The crop yields of rain fed areas are far less than those of irrigated areas. Since independence, Government of India has spent considerable amount of funds, time and energy on development of command area and still has not been successful in utilizing 100% of the potential created.
