Solar Energy Can Revolutionize Agriculture and Boost Food Security
Dec. 13, 2016

In Sub-Saharan Africa, two billion acres of farmland are weather-dependent. Farmers who've adopted solar water pumps and drip irrigation reduce the risk of crop failure and improve productivity and food security. Powering Ag Innovators Futurepump and SunCulture are helping with this transition.

Nov. 28, 2016

SunCulture works at the intersection of technology and agriculture to improve crop yields, conserve water, and above all, help East African farmers increase their annual income. This enables farmers to hire workers, which in turn frees children from farm labor and provides funds for their education.

SunCulture has sold over 1,000 solar-powered irrigation kits in Kenya. Their next focus will be on Tanzania, Uganda and Rwanda, where regular droughts lead to food shortages. In addition, they're working with the Norwegian Refugee Council to set up 150 acres of solar-powered irrigation in Somalia.
