Farmers in Chitwan Grow More With Solar
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
