Axial flow pumps (AFPs) are a climate-smart irrigation technology that delivers considerably more water while significantly reducing fuel energy use. AFPs are a reliable technology that lower the environmental footprint of surface water irrigation.https://csisa.org/

Costly and fuel inefficient irrigation practices
Axial flow pumps are affordable and fuel-efficient, delivering more water per drop of fuel consumed. The technology has been scaled in Bangladesh by replacing less efficient surface water irrigation pumps and encouraging irrigation service provision business models, while aligning with the private sector to import, manufacture, and durably sell axial flow pumps in the FtF zone.
The Cereal Systems Initiative for South Asia (CSISA) is led by the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) and implemented by a team of scientists and change-makers with the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) and the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI). Operating across South Asia, CSISA works to increase the adoption of resource-conserving and climate-resilient technologies and improves farmers’ access to markets and enterprise development.
