Water4Crops – reuse of treated wastewater delivers higher crop yields

The safe reuse of wastewater for agricultural purposes is showing higher crop yields and reducing the amount of pollutants in wastewater by 30-92%. The reuse of treated wastewater to irrigate fields has shown increased yields of up to 40% in vegetables such as okra, brinjal and chilly as compared to those irrigated by fresh water. These results have been achieved under the European Union and Government of India funded project Water4Crops project. .

The safe reuse of wastewater for agricultural purposes is showing higher crop yields and reducing the amount of pollutants in wastewater by 30-92%. The reuse of treated wastewater to irrigate fields has shown increased yields of up to 40% in vegetables such as okra, brinjal and chilly as compared to those irrigated by fresh water. These results have been achieved under the European Union and Government of India funded project Water4Crops project. .

 

These results were shared by EU and Indian government at the recent three-day review and planning meeting, titled Integrating Bio-treated Wastewater Reuse with Enhanced Water Use Efficiency to Support the Green Economy in EU and India.

 

Water4Crops is one of the largest EU-India collaborative projects. Through its 7th Framework Program, the European Commission in 2012 supported the four-year Water4Crops-EU project with a EUR 6 million funding. In the same year, the Department of Biotechnology, Government of India provided EUR 3 million for a twin project, Water4Crops-INDIA.

 

Mr YS Chowdary, Minister of State, Ministry of Science & Technology and Ministry of Earth Sciences, Government of India, highlighted the importance of treated wastewater for addressing the issues of sanitation and health in rural areas as well as meeting the demand of scarce water resources for agriculture to improve the livelihoods.

 

H.E. Tomasz Kozlowski, the Ambassador of the European Union to India, said, “The EU and India have similar objectives in the area of research policies – in particular a focus on innovation and on common societal challenges such as health, water and energy. Water is clearly a worldwide challenge and therefore its management requires new approaches and technologies. This is an area where the EU has significant experience and we are happy to work together with India. This project is a good example of how top-level research organizations from several European countries have joined forces with their counterparts in India to develop concrete solutions that benefit both sides. We continue this partnership with India through the Water Forum.”
