My name is Terry. I am a farmer operating a small farm located in Central Kenya specializing in vegetable farming.
The erratic weather patterns have really affected us farmers especially here in Africa. We can no longer depend on the rains to farm.

Last season, we experienced a few showers before planting and then right after planting, the rains stopped.  Within a short while, my shallow well dried up, and my water reservoirs were completely depleted before my crops could mature. Despite all my hard work, I watched helplessly as all my crops wilted due to the dry spell causing me to incur huge losses.
The system of irrigation I am currently using(sprinkler irrigation) wastes a lot of water due to surface runoff.
I beleive the only way I will be able to do any meaningful farming and protect myself from future vagaries of weather, is through drip irrigation. Had I been using drip irrigation last season, my water reservoirs would have been sufficient to carry my crops to maturity despite the failed rains.
I would be deeply indebted to anyone who can assist me in purchasing the Drip Irrigation Kit that will enable me conserve water and farm all year round without depending on the rain.
Thankyou for visiting my page and I sincerely look forward to hearing from you.
