The imperative for Conservation Agricultural mechanization
Presented By: Ann Adjei
Event: Symposium on Best Practices in Sustainable Agriculture (2019-02-14)
Session: Mechanized farming is no longer an option but necessary to help meet the increasing demand of food in Africa. Today there are different types of mechanization that support Conservation Agriculture from land preparation through planting to harvesting. The idea of mechanization sounds complicated and expensive but in actual fact how simple and cost effective mechanized farming is a choice we get to make.
