Concept

About the project Edit

Kadogo is a farming equipment model born from the need to conserve water resources. It is a low cost hydro-agricultural drip irrigation system made from urban waste. Used plastic mineral water bottles or bottles for drinks or other liquids are particularly good because they stack really easily to make drip water irrigation pipes.

Climate change has a significant impact on the planet’s water resources. It will be a disaster especially for the world’s poor if nothing is done to reduce the effects of global warming.

Adapting to climate change is perhaps the best solution for farmers. Agricultural adaptation is based on using production equipment or systems available to small farmers.

The cross between making adequate equipment available to farmers and sustainable water resource management has given rise to kadogo, a drip irrigation system model for small farms that are very ecological and economical.

Every farmer can make his/her own kadogo from used plastic packaging.

Extending kadogo is a huge contribution, also to the conservation of natural resources.
