Aiming to boost cotton production in Mwanza and Kigoma regions of the country, the Tanzanian Government has entered into a Mmorandum of Understanding with Jain Company of India for introduction of drip irrigation system in the two regions, said Minister for Agriculture, Food Security and Cooperatives, Engineer Christopher Chiza.

Speaking at the ninth cotton sub-sector stakeholders meeting in Mwanza city, he said the intention behind introducing the system is to reduce the adverse impact of floods on cotton farming.
 
He said his Ministry has already introduced crucial steps to overcome the problem, and added that both the parties to the deal would survey the prospects of introducing the drip irrigation system in the two regions to boost cotton output.
 
The Minister also noted that he has directed agriculture experts to help in overcoming the problems that surfaced in the cotton irrigation projects at Bugwema.
 
He further said the farmers should adapt to modern agricultural practices that have a potential to boost cotton production.
