Research & Demonstration on Irrigated Agriculture

PCRWR established a Research & Demonstration Centre in 2005 comprising land of 21 acres to formulate water conservation strategies for Irrigated Agriculture. The Center is located about 4 km away from Sial interchange on M2 motorway in District Sargodha (see location map). Research activities at the Center are focused to enhance water use efficiency (WUE) by introducing adaptable water conservation techniques. Though, drip and sprinkler irrigation system have proved best WUE and saving of water 50-70 percent but input and maintenance cost is challenge of the farmer. Hence, PCRWR emphasizing on affordable & adaptable best water management techniques like bed and furrow irrigation, zero tillage (sowing of wheat followed by rice) and LASER land leveling by which 20-40 percent of water can be saved in wheat and rice crop.
