Drip irrigation puts small amounts of water/fertilizer across an area in a uniform manner. It is one of the best ways to conserve water when irrigating land due to a very small amount of water loss due to evaporation or runoff. Because the flow is continuous in drip irrigation, the water is able to get deep into the roots and there is a larger yield of crops.
Terawet Green Technologies serves both Asia and the Middle East by providing water treatment services for public health and agriculture.
Their original goal was to reduce world hunger and realized that water management plays a huge role in adequate food production. Since then, they have worked to produce a line of products that promote efficient water usage for agricultural and drinking purposes.
Technology and businesses can heavily impact the evident water issues and benefit the lives in Southeast Asia, and Terawet is doing just that.
Next week, we will show you the tremendous work being done by Kohler and the Global Good Fund in this space.
