Abstract: As we know that river water current has some velocity in the range 0.5-5m/s it poses an amount of kinetic energy & also the obvious need for agriculture is water, which is required to be pumped from river. So it is seems a good idea to pump that water by using the hydropower from the same river without any special construction. So we decided to put that idea in actual practice. The moving water rotates the wheel or turbine, which spins a shaft. The motion of the shaft can be used for mechanical processes, such as pumping water, or it can be used to power an alternator or generator to generate electricity. The use of hydrokinetic energy to pump the water for agriculture fields is very economical.
