"Water Research for Changing World"
Malik Fateh Khan, Program Coordinator, National Rural Support Program visited PCRWR, R&D Farm, Darkali Kalan on 12th December, 2016. Dr. Muhammad Ashraf, Chairman, PCRWR briefed him about the simplistic water management interventions carried out at the farm. Small solar-powered pumping system installed at the farm was of particular interest for the visitor. He was informed how a small 0.3 HP solar powered pump is catering the pumping needs of the 175 kanal farm. He applauded the low cost system and pledged his support for its adoption through micro-crediting among the small farmers. PCRWR has recently joined hands with NRSP for adoption of such low cost system under the ICARDA sponsored project, ICARDA project, “Diffusion and adoption through partnerships and action of the best watershed rehabilitation and irrigation practices and technologies to help rural farmers”. The objective of the project is to get adopted small solar powered drip systems in the Barani areas.Back
