Development (R&D) and Innovation are key factors in the irrigation industry, which have enabled outstanding achievements with impressive productivity gains in the last century. Remarkable successes which energized and empowered the green revolution relied to a great extent on public funds supporting research in public institutions. Today, however, R&D plays a crucial role in the growth of private companies and consequently they are making sizeable investments in R & D. There has been a paradigm shift in crop variety R&D over the past 30 years, which has evolved from being predominantly public to predominantly private.
Leading agriculture to the next green revolution, several private sector irrigation companies have witnessed spectacular progress from small operations to large integrated enterprises with advanced capabilities of variety development and irrigation production, conditioning, and marketing. Towing a similar line, Drip ‘n’ Drip Irrigations has been consistently focusing on R&D and innovation, meeting the exacting needs of the farmers and the agriculture industry and making significant contributions to irrigation R&D in India.
