Location: Turkey/Konya/Karatai/Nuolum/Mendes Eltan Farm
Introduction: Konya province is located in south-central Turkey and is the main agricultural center of the Anatolian Plateau, at an altitude of 1027 meters and a population of about 2.1 millions. Agricultural irrigation water is often under strain during the dry season due to the low average annual precipitation and uneven seasonal distribution in the region. The main local farms are far from the urban area, the electricity supply is highly unstable and the electricity bill is very high. Farmers need to be equipped with large diesel generators to power pumps and pump water to meet irrigation water, which is not only expensive to operate and maintain, but also contributes to some pollution of the local environment.
