Example text

It might be useful to undertake trials using draft cows, in case this could be a solution to the problem of obtaining replacement animals. Weedingupland rice with PecotmI at Waridala -- 42 Animal Power in Farming Systems FIELD VISITS Demonstration of animal power gear systems at Rolako Ox Plow Centre Jonas Kdroma ’ and Wulf Boie 2 Background Two animal power gears were set up at the Rolako Ox Plow Centre during the months of August and September 1986, with financial and technical support of the German Appropriate Technology Exchange (GATE), a division of GTZ.

There was also a need to explore viable credit schemes. In the area of research the team observed that existing agronomic practices were not always compatible with animal draft technology and that studies should be conducted to help farmers fit their practices to animal prrwer interventions. Also there was the need to evaluate alternative implements and field cropping systems related to animal draft technology. The team suggestedthat studies bc undertaken on the suitability of the animal technology for women, including factors such as the appropriatenessof implements for use by women.

There is no coverage of the village by the extension or veterinary services. Possible solutions It is recommended that the introduction of animal traction be looked at as a part of an integrated production system and not as an end in itself. An integrated farming systems research programme is needed. This might inelude on-farm experiments, one set managed by researchers and the other managedby farmers, designed to establish an appropriate set of agronomic practices for use in an integrated farming system in which animal traction is used for crop production.
