    The objectives of the Congress are as follows:

    To share experiences in the use of new technologies and best management practices in drip, micro-sprinkler, and other localized irrigation systems;

    To review the status of use of micro irrigation for smallholders;

    To understand socio-economic and technological factors impeding expansion of drip and micro-sprinkler irrigation area.


    Papers were invited from experts, irrigation managers, researchers, government and private agencies, farmers, technicians and students to contribute with their knowledge and experiences, by submitting papers on the following topics:

    Group A

    Best management practices/ success stories of micro irrigation adoption;

    Lessons learnt from failures in up scaling micro irrigation

    Low cost and low energy consuming irrigation systems;

    Group B

    Advances in operation and cost effective maintenance of micro-irrigation systems;

    Management and cost of micro-irrigation for large farms;

    Efficiency and productivity in micro irrigation systems

    Developments in Subsurface micro-irrigation;

    Use of low quality waters in micro-irrigation;

    Group C

    Automation in micro irrigation;

    Micro irrigation in greenhouses;

    Micro-irrigation for small scale farms;

    Modeling, design and decision support system in micro-irrigation;

    Fertigation in microirrigation;

    Group D
