3 HP Electric pumps with 4 LPS discharge can replace 5 HP Diesel engines for farming can be deployed on solar power.
5 HP electric pumps on solar power @ head 25 m will discharge of 9 LPS.
Existing installed 3Ø, 415V electric pumps can also be migrated on SOLAR power.
Warranty against mfg. defect: Product warranty on solar panels 5 years.
The VFD functionality of the Pump Controller enables slow start and increases life of the pump’s motor.
Tandem Working: These pumps can work either on solar power / grid electricity.Benifits:
Farm income increase by 2-3 times and more with multiple cropping and increased acreage under cultivation (refer actual case studies)
Farming now creates local livelihoods and create an environment for reverse migration or stem the migration.
Payback period within 2 – 3 years for farmers and zero recurring expenses thereafter
Maximum need of water for farming is during summer when there are maximum power outages of the grid electricity.
The 3Ø power can also be utilised to drive chaff cutting mc’, milling and grinding mcs’ during idle solar power.
The MSEDCL has commenced installation of meters with AMR, hence farmers will have to bear the load of paying of electricity bills.
Drip Irrigation is defined as any watering system that delivers a slow moving supply of water at a gradual rate directly to the soil. Drip irrigation, which is also sometimes referred to as micro-irrigation or trickle irrigation, consists of a network of pipes, tubing valves, and emitters.Benifits
Increase in yield up to 230 %.
Saves water up to 70% compare to flood irrigation. More land can be irrigated with the water thus saved
Crop grows consistently, healthier and matures fast.
Early maturity results in higher and faster returns on investment.
Fertilizer use efficiency increases by 30%.
Cost of fertilizers, inter-culturing and labour use gets reduced.
Fertilizer and Chemical Treatment can be given through Micro Irrigation System itself.
Undulating terrains, Saline, Water logged, Sandy & Hilly lands can also be brought under productive cultivation.
Flood Irrigation is an ancient method of irrigating crops. It was likely the first form of irrigation used by humans as they began cultivating crops and is still one of the most commonly used methods of irrigation used today. Although flood irrigation will never be as efficient as other types of irrigation there are several techniques that can be used to improve its efficiency:
Leveling fields – because water is transported using gravity it won’t reach high spots in the field
Surge flooding – rather than releasing water all at once it is released in intervals allowing each release to infiltrate the soil before releasing additional water.
Recycling runoff – water that runs off the end and sides of the irrigated are is captured in low-lying areas and pumped to the top of the field where it can be reused.
