In collaboration with our local partner Greenserve Agrisolutions, we’ve conducted the demonstration event of Barsha Pump in September 2019 in Sagana, Kirinyaga county. Farmers in Kenya can now easily acquire the Barsha pump from Nairobi.
Jaime Michavila, lead hydraulics engineer of aQysta, presented the Barsha Pump and aQysta’s second product – the HyPump as a successful example of doing business in the Spanish water sector in a Water Seminar in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. The event was organized by RVO (Netherlands Business Agency) and the Dutch government, in order to provide the participants with information on the expanding water sector of Spain.
Our Co-Founder, Pratap Thapa participated as a panelist in the session: “Agri + Water = Smart Farming” in the CII tech summit 2019. He stressed on the importance of focusing on resource-efficient farming to shift to smart farming. In India, 70% of the freshwater and 20% of the energy produced in the country is used in the irrigation sector. When we think about smart farming, it is important to think about energy-saving technologies in addition to water-saving technologies in irrigation.
