$190m for Irrigation Projects in 2011

The Agricultural Initiative panel plans to spend roughly 225 billion Iraqi dinars [$190m] on agricultural irrigation in 2011, according to a statement issued by the panel on Thursday.

“The Initiative’s executive director, Dr. Hussein Jabir, proposed to the water resources ministry some selected projects for the year 2011 and offered a brief study on each of them to be adopted soon,” said a statement received by Aswat al-Iraq news agency.

The projects include sprinkle irrigation stations in Kirkuk, linkage to the main canals of al-Furat, al-Sharqi, Sharq al-Gharraf, and Gharb al-Gharraf, and excavation of water wells in the provinces of Karbala, Najaf and Muthanna.
