Barsha Pump - A water wheel propelled pump that lifts water for irrigation from rivers with no emissions or operational costs

The Barsha Pump is a water wheel propelled pump that utilises energy from the flow of rivers and canals to pump water for agriculture without requiring any fuel or electricity. Depending upon the soil, crop, climate and irrigation technique, one Barsha Pump can irrigate up to 2 hectares of land. Using this Solution in integration with storage systems and efficient water distribution techniques such as sprinkler systems can further help to irrigate a larger area. This Solution not only delivers large cost savings for farmers, but also reduces emissions whilst delivering an efficient and sustainable water irrigation option.
