Mechanized raised-bed irrigation: Production package
Secretariat FAO. (1/4/2018). Mechanized raised-bed irrigation: Production package. Italy: Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).
This project aimed at up-scaling the field-tested Mechanized Raised-Bed Irrigation (MRBI) production package in Egypt, focusing on small-scale farming systems (see Box for explanation of MRBI). The package included access to the MRBI machinery for wide raised-bed planting, high-yield disease-tolerant varieties, and extensive training for seed applications and fertilization regimes. Capacity-building activities for farmers included on-the-job training, demonstration fields, and farmer-to-farmer field visits.
