Water Storage

iDE is developing low cost plastic storage bags that can be used as headers for drip irrigation and sprinkler systems. Currently, farmers pay approximately US$20 for used 200 liter (53 gallon) oil drums in which they are able to store water. IDE has developed a 200 liter (53 gallon) header bag that is expected to retail in Africa for about US$5 and is ready for extensive farmer testing.

Through the Rural Prosperity Initiative, several designs for lined ponds (pictured) were developed and tested for holding larger amounts of irrigation water.
