My project is to establish a proper irrigation systems like drip irrigation.My name is Gladys sylivester mayombo. I am 23 years old, I’m from Tanzania in a city called Dar es Salaam. In my family I’m the first born and I have three young brothers.
Currently I’m a student at Cyprus international university in north Cyprus. I’m in my third year studying a degree of plant production and technology under faculty of Agriculture sciences and technology.
We have a family farm 100 hectares located in Pwani rural areas based on watermelon, rice, passion fruit and some livestock keeping such as cows, chicken etc. We want to expand our farm to produce more crops such as maize and vegetables like tomato, carrot, onion and fruits like pineapples, banana and mango.
The big problem we have is poor supply of water which leads to low yield of products and poor quality.
As we all know there are many advantages of drip irrigation. It saves labor, prevents flooding, equal amount of water to each plants, and prevents unnecessarily loss of water etc. As well as suitable for environment, prevents environmental pollution and increase more labor so employment opportunities in rural areas.
In addition to that, if I get that money I will buy modern farming equipment such as tractors, planting machines as well as harvesting machines.
Hopefully you will take my request into consideration.
