Type of Project: Drip Irrigation
Location: Jharkhand, Maharashtra (Bhindi)
Description: In this project, 8HP Solar Pumps with Drip Irrigation Systems have been installed in both Jharkhand & Maharashtra. The farmers are becoming well-equipped with irrigation systems to replace the dependence on the grid to generate extra revenue. In this project, a solar pump-powered drip irrigation system is employed, which provides drip irrigation onto 25 acres of land in Jharkhand. This has helped the farmers cultivate more cash crops than just one crop throughout the year, thereby increasing their income from INR 30,000 – 40,000 to INR 1 Lakh. The system is highly beneficial for the farmers as it has cut down on the irregularity of the water supply, which could previously hamper the process of hassle-free farming.
