optimum supply of water, then more water flows affecting
the crop productivity and frequent break down of electric
motor and recurring repairs.

sufficient time is given for recharge of ground water.
– During summer, regular supply of water is needed for the
crop to sustain intense heat of the sun. However in case of
electricity supply, due to frequent power cuts during
summer, required water supply is not ensured to the crop.
These problems one can overcome with solar power supply.

power output, low motor speed, float switch input, dry run
and thermal overload.
