This study intends to help unlock the potential of two solarisation models - solarisation of rural electricity feeders and solarisation of individual grid-connected pumps - to power India’s irrigation needs.

Solar water pumps (SWPs) are a clean, modern irrigation solution that have the potential to improve livelihoods and food security for smallholder farmers across Sub-Saharan Africa. As small-scale SWPs become more affordable, this market is poised for growth.

Widespread adoption of efficient irrigation technologies, including drip irrigation, has been proposed as a means of limiting groundwater overexploitation, especially in the intensively farmed and water-stressed South Asia region.

Order of the National Green Tribunal (Eastern Zone Bench, Kolkata) in the matter of Krishan Chandra Santra & Others Vs Pollution Control Board, West Bengal & Others dated 17/06/2021.

The matter related to illegal construction and filling the construction material in a waterbody in Baruipara Paltagarh Panchayat which is connected to the Damodar Valley Corporation Canal. The applicants are farmers using the waterbody as a source of irrigation for their agricultural fields.

India’s mission to deploy some 2 million off-grid solar-powered irrigation pumps is making sluggish progress, with only one-eighth of the target achieved so far, according to a new report from the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA) which urges the central and state governments to remove bottlenecks in the installation

This report assesses the potential of solar photovoltaic (PV) irrigation for smallholder agriculture in Ghana, using elements of business planning and business models with a suitability mapping approach. These approaches take into account the economic as well as environmental sustainability of expanding such technology.

Widespread adoption of efficient irrigation technologies, including drip irrigation, has been proposed as a means of limiting groundwater over-exploitation, especially in the intensively farmed and water-stressed South Asia region.

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) launches a new Water Report “Guidance on realizing real water savings with crop water productivity interventions”, that includes clear and practical guidelines on how to implement ‘real’ water savings in agriculture through interventions for enhancing crop water productivity.

Groundwater on account of its universal availability, dependability and low capitalcost, is the major source of water to meet the requirement of various sector in India.

This report proposes solutions for efficiently implementing the existing schemes and measures that would assist in the greater adoption of sustainable water-use management practices amongst small and marginal famers, and other stakeholders in the agriculture sector.
