IN the state of Andhra Pradesh, India, about 62.8 lakh (6.2 million) hectaresa yield fruits, vegetables, turmeric, chilies and regular crops. About 53% of this land is irrigated by wells and borewells. This segment applies to farms or orchids owners having borewells of 5 hp (3.75 kW) and above.
In areas where there is no grid supply, farmers are compelled to use diesel pump sets to irrigate the fields. In summers, the scenario is very bad as the farmer has to depend upon the Diesel Gensets for pumping of water from the borewells. Solar DC submersible pumping solution is a practical, reliable, economical and affordable pumping solution from designed to address and mitigate the water needs inspite of ground water availability. This scenario is more or less similar in other states of South India.
