India’s diverse climate and terrain allow for excellence in a variety of agricultural products, but there is a city that produces so many bananas by itself that it could be a country of its own. Located in the northwestern corner of Maharashtra, the quaint city of Jalgaon is accomplishing these feet despite the odds stacked against it.
Ordinary to grow banana, it is preferred if the location gets a lot of rain. Jalgaon has just enough rain to sustain itself along with searing temperatures. However, the lone district manages to produce so much fruit that, in absolute numbers, it would be the seventh-largest producer of bananas according to Govt. sources.
The Jalgaon story becomes a little more cohesive when it’s realized that they at least have a railway station. But, the rest is still an uphill battle. And that’s when drip irrigation kicks in.
Previously Jalgaon could only cater to 10000 plants, on the best of days. But, with Drip Irrigation, they can cultivate 15000 plants at once using the same 15 horsepower motor.
Not only has Drip Irrigation increased their output, but it’s also resulted in saving nearly 60 to 70 % of the water according to the farmers in the area. A lot of this can be credited to Drip Irrigation that able to accomplish more with just eight hours of electricity, than what the motor could accomplish over 24 hours using flood irrigation.
