At SunCulture, we're working to Transform Agriculture by connecting farmers in Kenya with the technology and know-how required to sustainably improve crop yields while reducing input costs. The SunCulture SolarDrip Irrigation Kit combines the reliability of solar-powered water pumping with the efficiency of low-pressure drip irrigation. The system delivers water directly to crop roots, resulting in yield gains of up to 300% and water savings of up to 80%. The system also benefits farmers through significant cost savings on energy and fertilizer.
Farmers in Kenya are using the SunCulture SolarDrip Irrigation Kit to grow high-value horticultural produce such as lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and peppers, even during periods of extended drought. By selling this produce on the local market, a SunCulture farmer can expect to recoup his investment in the system in one 3-6 month growing season.
