Farmers can dramatically increase output when they have irrigation. But without electricity, they are unable to pump sufficient quantities of water.
Last quarter, SunFarmer constructed 7 agriculture projects in Chitwan, Nepal in partnership with Winrock International and Silver Spring Networks.
Solar water pumps are cheaper than diesel pumps and less labor-intensive than hand pumps. SunFarmer has solar-powered water services for:
- Livestock: Cows and Pigs
- Fish: 3 Ponds
- Vegetable Crops: Corn, Rice, Potatoes, Gourds, Cabbage
