Solar pumps are a great alternative for farmers who do not have access to the electrical grid and are not in close proximity to a water source. Solar pumps are powered by photovoltaic panels and are a great way to irrigate a field without the use of an engine or a generator. Solar pumps are also very versatile and can be used for various applications such as, watering crops, providing drinking water for livestock, and even supplying water for human consumption.
Solar water pumps are an ideal solution for farmers in remote locations who do not have access to water
The ROOTS Project has been helping farmers to install solar-powered irrigation systems in different provinces. This will also help smallholder farmers boost production and incomes and adapt to climate change. The solar-powered irrigation systems provide a reliable source of water for crops, even during the dry season. The ROOTS Project is also providing technical support to help farmers to make the most of the new technology.
