EPW Research Foundation JAIN IRRIGATION High Interest Cost JAIN IRRIGATION, the flagship company of the Jain group, manufactures micro- irrigation systems (MIS), plastic sheets and solar water heating systems. As the drip irrigation system of MIS was a relatively new and expensive concept in India when the company began manufacturing the same, it faced an uphill task in marketing the system to Indian farmers.

Each emitter delivers a controlled application of water, nutrient and liquid fertiliser to the root of the plant.
