There are 500 million one-acre farmers around the world. Rainfall has become very unpredictable due to climate change and fuel for petrol pumps is expensive. Irrigating crops leads to more reliable harvests and provides the opportunity to grow and sell produce out of season.
This can bring huge economic benefits to the farmers, their families and the wider community. Access to affordable irrigation is a major limit to farm productivity. In Africa only around 5% of cultivated land is irrigated, compared to 41% in Asia.
Futurepump is a leading manufacturer of low-cost, high-quality, solar irrigation pumps. Futurepump solar pumps are built with the rural smallholder in mind - they are robust, portable and have no recurring costs.
Solar irrigation is a sustainable solution. Futurepump solar pumps offer smallholder farmers a cheaper, cleaner and more sustainable alternative to costly and polluting petrol pumps. Irrigating crops on demand leads to more reliable harvests. It also gives farmers the opportunity to grow and sell crops out of season, bringing huge economic benefits to the farmers, their families and the wider community.
