C. Objectives
     To promote water saving technologies           (Drip) in agric ulture and
     horticultural crops for large scale adoption
     To enhance the crop and water productivity
     To increase the cropped area by crop diversification
     To converge with WRO and other line departments in over all improvement
     in total farm income


2. Issues/Constraints
     Improper Irrigation practices
     Non availability of labour in time
     Non-adoption of pre and post harvest technologies


3. Counter measures proposed
     Drip fertigation in sugarcane, coconut and vegetables
     Improved prodction technologies for maize an d sunflower




                                                                           284
I. Project Mode Activités
Precision farming in Vegetables

   To enhance the productivity of vegetables chilli and tomato in palar sub basin this
demonstration is included in 100 ha. This cost include cost of drip system, seeds,
fertilizers and chemicals. The model adopted in precision farming in government project
will be follwed this demonstration.

b. Improved production technologies in ma ize
       Under Palar sub basin nearly 17000 ha will be brought under maize cultivation in
the post project period by the agricultural department. TNAU included its transfer of
technology in maize, which helps in the large scale adoption. The technologies are
seed drill sowing, improved varieties (CO 1) /hybrids (COH M4), balanced nutrition and
scientific water management. Under this the cost of critical inputs like seeds, seed drill
and nutrients are included.      The cost on field days and publications showing the
success of the technology are to be included. Five seed drills will be purchased and
supplied to the Water User Association (Udumalpet, Madathukulam, Kudimangalam,
Sultanpet and Palladam)
