Dry season vegetable irrigation system plays a key role in the economics of smallholder farmers. It serves as a source of food, nutrition, income and employment generation, especially in the off-season.

GASIP through the Adaptation for Smallholder Agriculture Programme (ASAP) funding has provided solar-powered irrigation systems for 27 communities.
Our monitoring has discovered varied feedback from our farmers as they use the system for the first time during the dry season.

We encourage all the District Department of Agriculture under this GASIP programme to backstop our farmers in employing innovative irrigation practices that can enhance water efficiency, while reducing environmental burdens.

Dry season vegetable farming can bring substantial additional income and provide supplementary food for household consumption.

✅ Dry season farming help to improve the quality of the land being used.
✅ It helps to regulate the temperature of the soil.
✅ The irrigation helps to improve the water condition of the soil.
✅ It also helps to dissolve the nutrients in the soil and makes them available to the plant.
✅ The water content of the plant fiber, as well as the turgidity of the plant, can also be improved by dry season farming.

We entreat all, especially Districts supported by GASIP with solar-powered boreholes to make use of the facility effectively to achieve all-year-round farming.
