Current problem

Farmers across Africa face many challenges including: unreliable rainfall, low crop yields, high energy costs, lack of access to modern farming technology and insufficient access to capital.

Kenya has 5.4 million hectares of arable land, but only 17% of this land is suitable for rainfed agriculture; leaving the remainder in need of irrigation and pumping technology. Petrol, electric, and manual treadle pumps are presently available in the market, but the effectiveness of these technologies is constrained by high input costs and labor inefficiencies.

Introducing the SunCulture AgroSolar Irrigation System

Combining the energy efficiency of solar power with the effectiveness of drip irrigation results in the best solution for farmers, at a cost they can afford. Our AgroSolar Irrigation system makes it cheaper and easier for farmers to grow higher quality crops and increase their yields by 300% or more.

Presenting the opportunity

Kenya has 5.4 million hectares of arable land – perfect for agriculture. Relying on the rain, however, limits farmers to only harvesting twice per year. Irrigation unlocks the rest of the calendar, giving farmers control over market timing.
