Dear Farm Friends,
I have a around 2 acre farm consists of mostly Arecanut and coconut plantation. Due to labour issues would like to go for drip irrigation. Areca nut plats are 3 years old. I have heard that there is gov. provides 90% subsidy on drip irrigation, I would like to know from my farm friends on my following queries, those who have already done the drip irrigation.
- what would be the total approx. cost for the full set up.
- what are the procedures to apply for a subsidy.
- how long does it take to get the subsidy from the government.
