Agricultural mechanization for the communal area farmer in Zimbabwe
Research work in Zimbabwe, aimed at helping communal farmers, is focused on studying soil erosion and the shortage of draught power. Data is collected on soil characteristics, soil, water and crop yield responses to different cultivation systems, and equipment to implement these systems. Animal drawn toolbar carriers are being investigated to increase the work rate of draught animals.
