SunCulture

SunCulture designs, manufactures, finances and distributes solar-powered irrigation systems and agricultural extension services that make it cheaper and easier for farmers in Kenya to grow high- value fresh fruits and vegetables. The company’s solar-powered drip irrigation systems deliver water directly to crop roots, resulting in yield gains of up to 300% and water savings of up to 80%. The payback to the farmer purchasing the system is one three-month growing season — based on fuel, fertilizer, and labor savings and crop yield increases.
