Beyond machinery: Pathways to successful mechanization in Africa

Einreichungs-/Anmeldefrist 25.04.2019
Referent/in: Dr. Oliver Kiptoo Kirui, Center for Development Research (ZEF)

TThe biggest majority of work across African farms (65 percent) continues to be done manually through human muscle alone while about 25 and 10 percent of power for land preparation is derived from animal-powered tools and engine-powered (mainly diesel) machines respectively. Recently, there is an increasing interest by both the policy makers and the private sector to make mechanization work for the poor smallholder farmers. Efforts to deepen mechanization would involve providing incentives for private sector to scale agricultural mechanization initiatives and targeting and engaging both male and female farmers by investing in supportive infrastructure and farmer training at scale.
