Our activities in Ethiopia are mainly focused on improving tillage and seeding techniques, as well as crop management (spraying, mechanical weeding), whether field crops, vegetables or fruit crops.
Mechanization in Ethiopia is very recent, given the very low cost of labor. However, it appears that farmers and investors cannot rely on a workforce which has become too difficult to manage on growing acreage.
Moreover, when the crops are already mechanized, the techniques used are often not adapted: cereals sown broadcast, tillage in conditions that are too wet due to lack of suitable equipment, improper spraying. These unsuitable methods have severely limited crop yields.
