Solar irrigation can improve food security and prosperity, says UN agency

New research from the the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations has shown the significant potential for solar powered irrigation systems to increase sustainable water use.

The report highlights that solar powered irrigation systems are an affordable technology for small and large scale farmers in developing countries.

Solar irrigation also has the benefit of being climate-friendly and can help farmers adapt their agricultural practices to prepare for changing weather patterns.
