Impact of the ASMC planter on smallholder women farmers' lives
Dr. Timothy Harrigan and Maria Jones have developed a presentation that highlights the impact of the ASMC mechanical maize planter on smallholder women farmers in Burkina Faso. The presentation addresses how a cropping system approach was used to develop an improved planter, an in-line ripper for seedbed preparation, and an improved ox yoke for animal comfort.
