A. ACTIVITIES OF PADDY PLANT SEASON 2/2015 AND SEASON 1/2016
In ensuring the sustainability of paddy cultivation industry in Muda area, the management and supervision of irrigation services as well as the development of data collection (irrigation and agriculture) systems are especially emphasized by the Division (Irrigation and Drainage Service Division) to enable water management to be more accurate, efficient and effective.

In planning to determine the paddy planting schedule for the first season in Muda Region, several factors need to be taken into account: reservoir reservoir position, water source prediction, past season’s seasonal performance forecasts and several other factors.
