Article Title: Design and Construction Of A Pedal Pressure Irrigation Pump
by Ogbeide S. O.

Abstract:
A pedal pressure irrigation pump has been designed, constructed and tested. Tests results revealed that this machine can pump at a flow rate of 0.00026m3/s, given the machine efficiency to be 87 percent. This result confirms the functionality of the machine. The primary use of machine is in the field of agriculture. It is used to improve both the yield and quality of crops by making water available during less rainfall. An analysis on the cost involved to design and construct the machine reveals that it is cheap enough to be afforded by peasant farmers and yet performs the same function (which is the purpose of irrigation). It is easy to operate by anybody and does not require any special training. The material needed to designed and construct the machine are available in the market and also at low prices. This machine was designed and constructed to ease the difficulties faced by farmers in irrigating their farms and also to provide a machine with low costs, making it easily affordable.
