Support from the government regarding the adoption of micro irrigation systems is a key factor behind the development of micro irrigation systems market. The declining level of ground water has called for some critical goals for the issue, for example, reception of micro irrigation. Micro irrigation is feasible as it helps spare 50-60% water than what is utilized in stream irrigation and other conventional irrigation strategies. Because of this, various governments are empowering the utilization of micro irrigation and offering concession in deployment cost of micro irrigation systems. A few governments, for example, those of Norway, India, and Switzerland are additionally encouraging the popularity of micro irrigation systems.
