One thing I love about the hot season is we get to use the solar system to its full capacity.
This system runs a 3 phase line which helps us do quite a range of irrigation activities.
It’s around this time of the year where ZESCO bills are crazy high and more work at night to ensure irrigation is done at off peak hours.
As you plan your farming operations I do recommend solar systems from reputable companies
It will require you to understand your borehole yield so you know what kind of pump you need
Next you will also need to know what your water needs are this will help you determine the number of panels and the size of panels.
Its important you also think of a tank for storage of water for irrigation so you have use your system even more effectively if you have several fields to irrigate.
