Better Irrigation Leads to Better Crops and Incomes
Better Irrigation Leads to Better Crops and Incomes

CAVAC irrigation schemes enable farmers to grow more rice by providing year-round access to water. They reduce workloads and costs for farmers who used to irrigate their fields by accessing wells or using private water sellers. As a result of CAVAC support, crop intensity (the number of crops grown per year) and crop yields are increasing, and the cost of pumping water is reduced.
