There are 30 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 patchy. Khethworks works to alleviate poverty and enhance food security among these farmers. The Khethworks solar-powered irrigation system allows small-plot farmers to affordably cultivate crops year-round, increasing their livelihood and food production. When a farmer switches from renting diesel and kerosene to using Khethworks' system, they can increase annual profits by 170 percent. In a country that will be the most populous on Earth within six years, the opportunity is great, and the need dire, for a dramatic increase in agricultural productivity. Khethworks believes viable irrigation options for 85 percent of Indian small-plot farmers are key. As a for-profit company, Khethworks commits to reinvesting the majority of their profits to further their social mission.
