Dripsol Company, a company dealing with customized drip irrigation kits based in Limuru has recently announced that it will be reducing its drip systems installation charges commencing mid August. This is in a bid to help small and medium scale farmers access professional irrigation services at an affordable cost. The company’s Technical lead Mr. David Weru, said that the prices will be more affordable since they have been able to partner with new suppliers who will be supplying more superior quality raw inputs. This will eventually lower the cost of drip tapes by a two shilling margin per meter but still maintaining quality and reliable services.
This move is meant to see the company scale more through providing reliable irrigation solutions at affordable cost. According to Mr Samuel Kamau a technician at the company, the lowered prices will see more clients installing the Dripsol drip kits systems as they are specific to the farm sizes and the company also offers one year free maintenance. The company is set to be awarded seed capital through the Tony Elumelu entrepreneurship program as it qualified for the same.
