The expected outcomes of the proposed action plan are:


  • Water saving to satisfy the environmentally minimum flow of the Axios River, through the reduction of irrigation water used in rice cultivation in the area.
  • Protection of agricultural income by improving knowledge about rice cultivation yields under different water conditions.
  • Demonstration to rice growers of alternative irrigation practices that maintain field moisture in saturation conditions and avoid full flooding of the field throughout the growing season.
  • Promotion of a culture of saving irrigation water in rice cultivation to the local community of producers in the Axios River basin.
