Our country has always been struggling with the issue of poverty and starvation especially in the drought hit areas. With the introduction of irrigation equipment many dry areas have been able to produce better farm produce than they had ever imagined. Dry area can now also boost of their own produce and they can also be able to feed their own local people. Apart from just feeding their own many dry counties have even been able to sell some of their produce to the neighbouring counties giving a clear indication of how the country is slowly growing improving its agricultural sector. But many would wonder how many types of irrigation equipment are found in the country. There are various types of irrigation equipment as I have stated below which are used differently according to the type of irrigation you want to perform on your farm. It is important to note that it doesnt matter if you are a small scale or a large scale farmer, irrigation equipment will cater for your needs.
