Hayleys Agriculture installs Modern Pivot Irrigation System at NLDB Ridiyagama Farm
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. Therefore further to a study of the irrigation requirements Hayleys Agriculture in association with AGRICO installed a modern Pivot Irrigation System which would enable the farm ensure irrigation of 60 Acres hassle free whilst enabling mechanization of the fields.
