Sample text

The soil type, slope an& the cropping system. The subject of tied ridging was raised. Research trials had shown that in the semi-arid areas tied ridging can raise yields. Tied ridging is labour-intensive, but animals can be used effectively. Research on equipment and techniques for animal-powered ridging tying was being undertaken by ICRISAT and IITA/SAPGRAD, but it was too early to say whether the farmers would feel the enhanced yields would justify the extra work required to achieve them. There were questions about terracing.

Boie, E. Busquets, A. Diallo, S. Harouna, S. Hooke, R. Imboden, E. Koroma. Context Animal-drawn, implements cannot be considered iu isolation from crop production sys tems. For any particular region, crop or soil type it is essential to take into account operational requirements for agronomic and soii management practices.. Use of available designs When selecting implements for testing, the potential of implements currently used by farmers should be evaluated. Only if locally available equipment fails to meet the needs, should new designsbe introduced.
