Rolf Sommer, Awole Muhabaw, Worku Biweta. (31/12/2015). On-farm evaluation and demonstration of animal drawn mouldboard and Gavin ploughs, in "Mitigating Land Degradation and Improving Livelihoods - An integrated watershed approach". New York, United States of America: Taylor & Francis (Routledge).
The study reported in this book chapter was undertaken to evaluate technical performance of the mouldboard and Gavin ploughs against the traditional plough; to evaluate the impact of zero-tillage as against conventional methods; to evaluate the effect of the improved ploughs on soil infiltration and crop productivity; and to undertake a farmers’ evaluation on the system compatibility of the new implements.
