Honduran farmers prize rainwater as precious harvest

Friday, March 24, 2017

The Honduran government is planning to build hundreds of rainwater harvesting systems each year in Central America¡s “dry corridor”.

These capture and store the rain that falls during the wet season in reservoirs, which are usually linked to drip irrigation systems that allow farmers to harvest up to three crops instead of one, easing poverty and chronic food insecurity.
