Jharkhand's solar pump scheme aims to improve lives of farmers by increasing irrigation potential

In India, small farmers face limited access to irrigation. However, a state-run program, which gives them access to solar powered pumps, is alleviating their problems. Not only is it better for their crops, increasing their income, but it's also better for the environment. The solar-powered pumps provide a clean energy option, rather than relying on diesel-powered pumps.
