WHAT WE OFFER

As a company, we are passionate about excellence and the provision of global solutions in:

  • WATER (BOREHOLE)
  • AGRICULTURE (IRRIGATION)

Currently we are providing high quality work and services in very relevant areas in the supply chain of underground water supply and irrigation development. The works and services can be categorized into the following;

Borehole Drilling

At Stanbest we believe that access to potable water is a right and must be supplied in a sustainable manner to meet all the needs of humans and the environment to promote sustainable development.

Generally, our work can be summarized as following:

    • Hydro geophysical exploration (Siting and Prospecting for underground water)
    • Well construction and development (drilling, pump testing and other works for a sustainable and reliable water supply)
    • Well mechanization (pump installation, water supply equipment and controls)
    • Potable water testing (laboratory testing of the physical and chemical composition of the water as well as the bacteriological composition)
    • Pipe work and storage facilities (connection of pipes for distribution and water storage)
    • Hydro fracturing of low yielding wells.
    • Water treatment services.

With our highly experienced team of hydro-geologists, engineers, drillers and technicians you are assured of state of the art borehole facilities to meet your water supply needs in a
sustainable manner.

Irrigation Solutions

Irrigation is an essential part of sustainable farming today, there exist different forms of farm irrigation systems. With the right understanding of the crop type, nature of land and soil and with the right installation, it is possible to keep unlimited acres of fields productive, even when they are far from any water source of water or if rainfall is not sufficient.

General Irrigation Situation in Ghana
According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation more than half of Ghana’s land suitable for agricultural production is not being cultivated, and less than 1.6 percent of land suitable for irrigation has been developed.

Agriculture in Ghana is dominated by small-scale farms – about 3 million smallholder farmers, with an average farm size of between 0.5 hectares and 2 hectares, currently produce 95 percent of the country’s food crops. Large farms and plantations generally focus on rubber, palm oil, and coconut, and to a lesser extent rice, maize, and pineapple.

Production on small farms is primarily rain-fed, using traditional, subsistence methods. But this exposes farmers to significant risk when seasonal changes and droughts occur. The use of irrigation technology, although currently not widespread, has an important role to play in
reducing risk and improving production.

DRIP IRRIGATION SYSTEM

Drip Irrigation Systems
We provide drip irrigation systems to farmers to ensure year round cultivation of crops.
Some benefits of drip irrigation system include the following:

  • The drip unit provides water directly to the crop hence the water holding capacity of the soil can be ignored
  • High water application efficiency
  • Minimum fertilizer/nutrient loss due to localized application
  • Reduction of crop diseases since flooding irrigation can easily transmit soil borne diseases and overhead irrigation can transmit foliar diseases.
  • Lower labour cost
  • Very efficient in weed control
