New Invention
An irrigation machine is made from lawn mowers
Many farmers from Binh Minh, Vinh Thuan, Kien Giang Province, developed an irrigation machine which allows farmers to water their fields. The machine was re-invented from existed lawn mowers.

Many households in Kien Giang together invented the machines which are as effective as commercial devices available in the market.

Mr. Tran Nguyen Vu, a farmer from Binh Minh hamlet, Binh Minh commune, with 10.000 square meters planting water melon, said: “In order to own an irrigation machine, farmers only pay 2 million VND, in which most cost is for lawn mowers, the remainders are to buy pumps, plastic tubes that are less than 100.000 VND.

The manufacturing process is quite simple; farmers just remove the blade, and replace with a pumping part.

According to Mr. Vu, the machine is as effective as 6 people who irrigate by hands, so it reduced the labor consumption dramatically
