Get in touch with from Khethworks


    Developer of solar-powered irrigation systems designed to enable small-plot farmers to cultivate year-round. The company's systems develop and implement solar-powered pumps as an alternative to dependence on inconsistent monsoon rains and costly fuel-based pumping, enabling farmers to get year-round irrigation, cultivation, reduction in CO2 emissions, reduction in poverty, and income generation.

    There are over 26 million farmers who tend to an acre or less of land in east India, where 60 percent of renewable groundwater is unused and agriculture-grade electricity is unreliable. With increasing fuel prices and decreasing availability, farmers are choosing not to cultivate for the summer season, when crops need the most water, but also when market returns for harvests are at their highest. By providing the means to irrigate crops with Knethwork's solar powered irrigation systems builds resiliency by enabling increased production for crops by small-plot farmers. Their patented technology allows for year-round cultivation and leads the market in efficiency and portability, price and performance. A single-switch automatic operation means that anyone - both men and women, can easily use the pump. The portability allows for farmers to use the pump during the day and store it safely at night, allowing for shared ownership or additional business income through renting the unit to neighbors.
