Our Platform

Farm Tech

Practical, hands-on technology can dramatically improve the productivity and sustainability of farmland. We offer a line of climate-smart irrigation systems designed for big impact.

Rural game changers

Reducing time, increasing yields

Good irrigation is the key to strong agricultural output, yet for many farmers in Myanmar, water management is a continuous challenge. Relying on ancient and labor-intensive methods has kept farmers’ productivity low and costs high. As a result, Myanmar has one of the lowest percentages of irrigated farmland in Asia.

There’s huge potential for impact here. Our Yetagon products are designed to replace the back-breaking and time-consuming work of hauling water from the well to the fields. A full irrigation set can cost a farmer just $71, but reduce labor time to minutes and increase yields by 33 percent.

Yetagon Irrigation Products

High-tech tools, smallholder price tag

Yetagon is the Burmese word for waterfall. It’s also the brand name for our portfolio of farm tech products including sprinkler and drip irrigation, solar-powered water pumps, sensors and precision planting. We’re taking new agricultural tech and redesigning it for small-plot growers.

Lotus
Solar irrigation pump play_circle_filled

Meet the Lotus — one of the lowest-cost solar pumps in the world. It makes clean, quiet running water a possibility for growers previously reliant on dirty diesel engines.

At $350, the Lotus is one of the pricier products in our line, and we’ve designed a rent-to-own program to ensure it gets into the hands of the customers who need it most.

Designed in Myanmar

Myanmar has gone through incredible changes and we’ve been changing, too. At the forefront of farm tech for the last 14 years, we began by introducing the humble treadle pump. A few years later, we were the first to introduce drip irrigation, and subsequently, sprinkler irrigation and solar-powered pumps.

All of our products are designed on location by our in-house design lab, based on feedback from farmers.

Creating value every day

In addition to reducing the time and drudgery of manual watering, by using our products, farmers are able to diversify the crops they grow and focus on higher value crops. Often they are able to expand their acreage under cultivation and extend the growing season. All this leads to improved productivity and higher incomes.

Going the last mile

Getting products to remote Myanmar farmers is no small feat. We employ a strong network of local distributors, village-based agents, sales representatives and an online ordering channel to sell our products nationwide.

I used to pray that summer would end sooner because hauling water was so exhausting. Now that I've installed drip, summer can last as long as it likes.
