Solar irrigation in Kenya
increase in crop yield
of farmers increase crops production
Installing state-of-the-art solar irrigation systems on smallholder farms across Kenya to replace fossil fuel generators, thereby improving water security for crops, enabling resilient soils during the dry season and increasing productivity and revenue for rural farmers.
Driving agricultural efficiency
Reducing water usage by 80% and reliance on fossil fuels
Increasing soil carbon levels, such as through crop rotation, organic fertilizer usage and zero grazing
Improving livelihoods for rural farming communities
17 hours saved per week per household by reducing the need for farmers, mainly women to collect water manually 87% of SunCulture farmers increased their crop production Increasing crop yields by 300%
