Welcome to Andhra Pradesh Micro Irrigation Project

Andhra Pradesh Micro Irrigation Project (APMIP), is the unique and first comprehensive project being implemented in a big way in Andhra Pradesh for the past 13 years. APMIP was launched in the month of November, 2003.The Project aims at improving the economic conditions of the farmers by conserving water, bringing additional area into cultivation with the available water resources, enhancing the crop productivity and production, quality, facilitating judicious usage of ground water, saving in power consumption and cost of cultivation. APMIP is being implemented with the assistance from Government of India, State Government and farmer contribution.

In view of the deficit Rainfall, Rain shadow regions, unpredictable rains and considerable depletion of ground water, the farming community realized the need to adopt the technologies of Micro Irrigation to achieve the concept of “More crop per Drop”. Government of Andhra Pradesh has set a goal to cover the entire potential area available in all the 13 districts of Andhra Pradesh under Micro Irrigation, within the next five years.

GOI have formulated a new scheme, “National Mission for Sustainable Agriculture” (NMSA) with effect from 2014-15 which has been designed by converging, consolidating and subsuming all the ongoing as well as newly proposed activities / programmes related to sustainable agriculture with a special emphasis on Soil and Water Conservation and Water Use Efficiency, Soil Health Management and Rain Fed Area Development. The existing National Mission on Micro Irrigation (NMMI) Scheme implemented up to 2013-14 was subsumed in to NMSA from 2014-15 onwards.

On Farm Water Management (OFWM) is one of the four components of National mission for sustainable Agriculture which focuses primarily on enhancing water use efficiency by promoting efficient On Farm Water Management Technologies and equipment. On Farm Water Management (OFWM) is implemented in the State through Andhra Pradesh Micro Irrigation Project (APMIP).
