Overview

? An updated and expanded new edition (formerly Water Pumping Devices) surveying the water-lifting technologies that are available and appropriate for smallholdings.
? Examines the costs and general suitability of the different technologies to enable farmers and policy makers to make informed choices. Efficient and effective irrigation of the land can have a dramatic effect on the agricultural output and economic well-being of a community.

It is a detailed and practical review of the options, especially for irrigation but also for other purposes, and the costs and general suitability of the different technologies are examined with the aim of enabling farmers and policymakers to make informed choices.
