Company Summary

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.

SunCulture also provides agricultural extension services, making it the only “one-stop shop” for smallholder farmers in Kenya.
