Oxen-drawn Maresha-attached tied-ridge

, : Oxen-drawn Maresha-attached tied-ridge. IAR Newsletter of Agricultural Research 10(2/3): 6-7

Tied-ridges are made by closing furrows at intervals to hold rain water, minimize surface runoff and improve infiltration.The Agricultural Implements Research and Improvement Center of the Institute of Agricultural Research at Nazret explored methods of mechanizing the construction of tied ridges.

In response to these problems an animal-drawn disc ridger was developed. Using t...
