Following a request from the NGO GK Enchanted Farm in the Philippines, Bernard travelled to the Philippines to develop solutions to the problem of water scarcity in the dry season that affects family farms. This NGO is currently working with 60,000 families across the country on several food security and rural household resilience projects.
The objective is to demonstrate on their 42ha demonstration farm that Aqualone can contribute to a sustainable solution to the problem of water scarcity in the dry season. The system will allow for non-seasonal production, contributing to the NGO’s food security project while directly increasing the income of family farms.
Three pilot sites were installed with Aqualone irrigation programmers and complete micro-irrigation networks (drip and microsprayers).
