Pathari (Morang), Sept 1: A group of students at the Manmohan Memorial Polytechnic (MMP) at Hattimuda, Sunsari district have invented an irrigation machine and thresher that run on solar power.
The inventors claim that both machines are less costly as compared to those imported machines and could be easily operated for these inventions neither require fuel nor electricity.
Furthermore, they believe that the solar-powered irrigation machine and threshers will be very useful for the peasants in an agricultural country like ours. “These machines are very cost-effective and could be used in the places devoid of regular irrigation system,” said Saroj Thapa, one of the inventors.
MMP Principal Dr Subash Pokharel stated that if the government would help develop these solar-powered tools for commercial purpose, the tools could replace the expensive foreign-imported machines being used by farmers in the country. RSS
