Helping the rice farmers in Ngoketunjia, Cameroon
One of the problems that the farmers raised with us was about the difficulties they are having with weeds.
To help them solve this problem we have provided them with rotary weeders imported from KGVK product and development. KGVK is the social arm of Usha Martin in India (a manufacturer of wire, rope and manufacturing items). KGVK as their social arm has been recognized as the “Best Social Development Organization” of emerging Jharkhand by the Times group of India.
The farmers will experiment with two designs of rotary weeders specifically designed for grass root rice farmers. As the agricultural season continues and the farmers will be able to use this equipment in erneast, we look forward to reverting with more feedback.
