Ltd.

India is primarily an agrarian economy where 67% of the population is dependent upon agriculture for its livelihood. With 16.7% of world's population, India has only 2.4% of land and only 4% of world's usable water. About 77% of this water is used in agriculture. Smart Irrigation Solutions play pivotal role in enhancing crop productivity. This technology not only saves water but also saves power, fertilizer and labour use. Field Automation is another solution that can help improving the agriculture efficiency of the country.

Mahamulkar, Head, Southern Market, Netafim Irrigation India expressed the noble intentions of the company, at this occasion and said that Netafim is committed to serve the nation with quality products and innovative technology ably supported by Agronomy and after sales support services and will continue to serve in a more efficient way for years to come.
