Helping the rice farmers in Ngoketunjia, Cameroon

June 2014: Introducing Rotary Weeders

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.

Great job Tamara, I hope the farmers like this innovation and implement it. Have you had any feed backs from the farmers on the workability of the weeders in the Ndop area. I greatly appreciate your contribution towards this course.

Thanks Francis. The farmers have only just started using it. So we will know more as the agricultural season advances. We will keep you informed
