Up to 1.5 billion acres across the African continent are fit for farming, and yet most farmers must rely on rain, limiting their yields and what they can earn. SunCulture empowers smallholder farmers with solar irrigation. The company works to increase farmers' profits and the productivity of their land by designing, manufacturing, selling, and distributing solar-powered irrigation solutions that make it cheaper and easier for farmers to grow high-value fresh fruits and vegetables. SunCulture's AgroSolar Irrigation kit is a highly efficient drip-irrigation system that delivers the perfect amount of water to each crop and can increase yields by more than 300 percent.
