He is our new customer and he came to us saying the above said issues and asked us a better irrigation method for fodder crop for cattle. Then we suggested him the Regular sprinkler system and we showed a live demo of our existing project Perumalmalai and we made him to discuss with that farmer, so that he can also know the benefits of sprinkler system. For his 1 acre field we had fixed 32 nozzles at the interval of 45ft.*25ft.. and its been divided into 3 control valves, which can be operated manually. If a farmer is interested in automation valves, we also provide solution for that.
