Made in Bangladesh: scale-appropriate machinery for agricultural resource conservation
An open-source publication targeted to machinery manufacturers, engineers, researchers and development practitioners, this book describes and provides technical designs for small-scale agricultural machinery developed or ...
Axial flow pumps can reduce energy use and costs for low-lift surface water irrigation in Bangladesh
With conventional centrifugal pumps (CEN), less than 50% of southern Bangladesh’s farmers invest in dry season irrigation, partly due to high and continually increasing diesel energy costs. Diesel pump efficiencies in ...
A simplified irrigation pump testing method for developing countries: a case study in Bangladesh
Much of South Asia experiences a monomodal rainfall pattern with a distinct dry season following the annual monsoon. Enabling irrigation during the dry season has therefore been crucial in assuring improved productivity ...
Axial flow pump and mixed flow pump for service providers: experiential learning modules for sustainable intensification and agricultural service provision
This training uses an experiential and hands-on modular format. It is based on a foundation of experiential and hands-on work, combined with discussion and reflection among participants. This means that although the ...
Axial flow pumps and mixed flow pumps for mechanics: experiential learning modules for sustainable intensification and agricultural service provision
This set of training modules focuses on ensuring that mechanics are able to make repairs to axial flow pumps and mixed flow pumps efficiently and correctly. It builds on other books in this series, and is designed so that ...
Costs of diesel pump irrigation systems in the Eastern Indo-Gangetic Plains: what options exist for efficiency gains?
(CSISA; CIMMYT; IFPRI; IRRI; University of Manchester, 2019)
Groundwater irrigation plays a critical role in supporting food security, rural livelihoods and economic development in South Asia. Yet, large disparities in groundwater access and use remain across the region. In the ...
