Dilasa is constantly working on Phad irrigation enabling the farmers to protect their crops especially in dry-spell condition & stress period generally occurred in rainy season. Another important objective of Phad irrigation is to enable farmers to grow second crop that is Rabbi Crop, even the summer crop where ample water is available in the check dam or cement plug.
