System: 8HP Solar Pumps with Drip Irrigation System and 12.5HP system with Lift Irrigation System

Location: Jharkhand & Maharashtra

Description: In this project, a solar pump-powered drip irrigation system is employed, which provides drip irrigation onto 25 acres of land. This has helped farmers who used to grow only 1 crop a year to now grow cash crops through the remainder of the year, thus increasing their yearly income from  30,000-40,000 to 1 lakh. In Maharashtra, we have achieved the same with a lift irrigation system that lifts water onto a hill from a stream 100 metres below it.
