Hayleys Agriculture installs another four Modern Pivot Irrigation Systems at NLDB Ridiyagama Farm.

Hayleys Agriculture in association with AGRICO installed another four modern Pivot Irrigation Systems which would enable the farm ensure irrigation of 60 Acres hassle free whilst enabling mechanization of the fields. The first system was installed in the farm in March 2020. The NLDB Ridiyagama Farm requires 70MT of fodder per day to feed the livestock and most of this is procured from external sources. Hence the management now wishes to cultivate Sorghum and Maize across the year to fulfill a portion of this fodder requirement. However, since the Farm is situated in the Dry Zone, supplementary irrigation is vital to enable year round cultivation.
