MicroMicro irrigation (drip/ trickle or localized irrigation) was introduced on commercial scale in the world sometime in seventies. Micro irrigation is the most efficient method of water application to crops; however, owing to its technicalities involved in design, operation and maintenance, the pace of its adoption was rather slow. In order to promote the use of micro irrigation on large-scale, irrigation community worldwide, especially in developed countries launched the hosting of International Micro Irrigation Congress commencing from the year 1971. Subsequently, ICID volunteered to organize the event commencing from 5th International Micro Irrigation Congress held at South Africa in 2000 with an objective of creating awareness among its members about latest developments in micro irrigation technology to enhance crop production. Since 2012 the event will be renamed as International Micro Irrigation Symposium.
