Billet précédent Billet suivant ABOUT THE NEW WAY OF IRRIGATION TO SAVE WATER WITH DRIPTECH LASER SPRAY IN SENEGAL WEST AFRICA Publié par dominique dans Connect! le 14 avr. 2018 08:17:00 Harvest for the world When it comes to water use agriculture is the elephant in the room, soaking up about 70% of the planet's freshwater Driptech says its irrigation system costs around 70% less than comparative high-end systems Farmers can cut consumption massively using a process called "'drip irrigation" - whereby exactly the right amount of water is dispensed to crops via long plastic watering tubes - but it is costly. However, Driptech, a start-up operating in India, says it has created a high-end system that comes in at around 70% cheaper than comparative technology. "Most drip systems today are too expensive for the 85% of Indian farmers that cultivate five acres of land or less," says chief operating office Sarah Huber. "We recently launched the first one-acre all-in-one, off-the-shelf drip irrigation system in India - InstaKit. "The entire system comes in three small boxes, and can be installed in under three hours by farmers on their own. Being portable, it can be shifted among fields where crop rotation is being practised." The idea is to use design and materials, to eliminate the need for "the high-powered pumps, expensive filters, and thousands of complicated emitters used in traditional drip irrigation systems".
