Solar powered Pesticide Sprayer

We have discussed many agricultural projects on this blog.This post is part of that series. Farming is one of the most oldest and important business ever done by humans but in most parts of the world it is done in traditional way. Though, farmers are adapting to changing times but their are many more things that's need to be done.

Why ?
At present time we use Power sprayer in two stroke petrol engine which pollutes our environment. It requires regular maintenance and filter cleaning regularly. It costs around Rs.70 / hr or $ 0.96 / hr. As demand of energy increasing, its cost is increasing too.  As we have seen example of Tractors, Motors electrical pump, Technology is being useful for improving production

How to build this project?
Solar Pesticide SprayerTheir are two ways you can do it. First one is from the scratch where we build each and everything ourselves and learn basics of motor, blower and solar power technology and second way is where we avoid reinventing the wheel instead of that focus on our task in hand which is building pesticide sprayer which runs with the help of solar power.

How ?
First method:
Prepare design of your sprayer using computer aided tool( CAD). You will require following materials for building this project:
Solar Panel Battery
DC Motor 
Connecting wires 

Second method:
You will need 82 W 12 V electric motor of around 1kg weight. Connect this motor with Li-ion battery which is further connected with solar panel. It would cost you around Rs.70 / hour which is at par with petrol powered sprayer.

Hello... Sir/Mam I want to work on this project. Please send me detail of this Project on my mail

Hi Suraj, this works on very simple concept, we are using electric dc motor for pumping the pesticide out and spraying it via sprayer(both are available in the local market). The only thing, which we are doing differently is that, we are powering this motor with batteries which get charged from solar cells. If you need any specific detail, please let me know. Thanks

Hello Sir I want to know how to install solar panel on this pesticide sprayer.If we have any idea please send me to my email id which is

@Akash.. their are tons of ways you can do that. For example, you can use plastic frame around the solar panel and hook it to the sprayer itself. If you have any further question, please let me know.
