    Welcome to the PF.

    I have added some words to your thread title to make it more descriptive. What pumps are available locally? What do other farmers in your area use for pumping water?

    It depends on what you are pumping the water for. Are you using it to pump clean water to your crops? Or are you using it to get rid of dirty water?

    If the water you pump is dirty, something like a screw pump would be best. If its to pump clean water, then you can use something like a piston pump or a centrifugal pump.

    It also depends on your flow requirements (pressure, flow rate, temperature).

    Perhaps tell us what you want to do with the pump so that we can better advise.
