We visited Malika Village yesterday, where farmers are getting the hang of the new pump. During our visit, they pumped the well dry irrigating their crops.It's time for a bigger well.
Watering with buckets can be so slow that the well refills faster than farmers remove water. With the rope pump, they can drain a 500 gallon well in less than 20 minutes.
Crops are progressing well at the club's demonstration site. Farmers have already started enjoying the mustard greens and rape leaves. Check out the video below.
