Solar-powered irrigation systems in Pakistan
To combat the effects of food scarcity, sporadic rainfall, and the ever-increasing demands of a growing population on the agricultural systems of the Potohar region, the Pakistan Agricultural Research Council (PARC) spearheaded a new model for sustainable Mini-Dam development, the Solar-powered Irrigation System (SPIS), which rested on the implementation of a Solar-powered pumping system and its integration with High Efficiency Irrigation technologies, including Drip-based and Sprinkler-based water transfer modules. The new irrigation mechanism was implemented over a sizeable scale of approximately 20 acres, and sought to demonstrate a series of integrated agricultural practices unified by a sustainable system, including: agro-forestry, pisciculture, seasonal vegetable cultivation, tunnel farming, and orchard arboriculture.
