Part of the Potato plantation that longs for water

Direct sunlight is required for all life on Earth.  It provides health benefits from the Vitamin D we receive from sunlight.  It acts as a disinfectant for molds, mildews, viruses, and this reduces the spread of the flu.  It provides photosynthesis which is needed for all plants to grow strong and healthy enough to produce food crops. And it drives the production of electrical power through solar panels.

When this sunlight becomes too much however, the plants begin to weaken and finally dry. The increasing sunshine has become a threat for our crops. We thank God for blessing us with a simple downpour last night and continue to pray for more rain and successful growth of our plants especially the Irish potatoes. The community is using a simple method of irrigation; however this method only sustains a small plantation and therefore could not work for the Irish Plantation which settles on a big plot of land. This simple-made irrigating pipe can only throw water to a limited distance.

Onions that lay on a dry land await for irrigation
