JICA Project conducted practical training on Drip Irrigation System.

With the support of the JICA Forest Product Project, drip irrigation systems were installed in experimental fruits nursery plots, Karakol and Balykchy Forestry Enterprises (FE) last month. Then, practical training on a drip irrigation system was conducted for staff of four FEs and local fruit growers of Karakol, Jety-Oguz, Issyk-Kul and Balykchy. They learned new irrigation methods that are aimed at a rational use of water resources. Despite the fact that there are enough water resources in the Kyrgyz Republic, land users often face water shortage for watering their nurseries due to uneven distribution of water reserves. The drip irrigation system is an effective way to solve this problem in many areas where there is no enough water.

Project provided Independent trainer, Mr. Nasyr Kanatbekov from Kyrgyz association of forest and land users, who explained to the participants that the use of drip irrigation system has a productive effect on increasing yields, saving water, fertilizers and time of land users. He told about the types of the system and the methods for installing and also demonstrated how to connect the parts, regulate drippers and clean filters. Deputy Director of Karakol FE expressed his gratitude for the JICA project for the provision of drip irrigation system and for the useful training on its usage.
