Company Summary

Irrigation distribution channels are fragmented, inefficient & expensive -- MyRain bridges the gap between technology and small-plot farmers in developing nations.

Distributors are trained to use wireless tablets and our in-house design and ordering software to create custom irrigation layouts. Equipment is shipped to the farm, and we assist in its installation and use. Water consumption is reduced and yields are improved, thanks to MyRain.
