FBR Staff Writer Published 07 May 2012

India-based Jain Irrigation Systems has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the University of Nebraska, US, to develop applicable technologies, in order to ensure sustainable food production and water conservation.

The applications resulting from the partnership are expected to help farmers in India become efficient food producers with efficient use of water and energy resources, PTI reported.

The parties will focus on research in water science and technology, policy and education, to develop agriculture globally, especially in regions such as India and Africa.

The agreement was signed between Jain Irrigation System managing director Ajit Jain and the president of University of Nebraska James Milliken.

University of Nebraska has also agreed for exchange of faculty and students between the two parties.
