Jain was recognized for its work to improve the livelihoods of 5 million small farmers in India by selling micro-irrigation systems. The company began selling the systems in 1986 and continues to boost crops and incomes by introducing more viable crop varieties and training farmers on more productive growing techniques. It has also branched out into solar water pumps.
