TOR for machinery session CLCA workshop
Lack of adapted agricultural machinery is a major constraint for agricultural development in semi-arid countries like Tunisia and Algeria. Due to that we face low crop production per ha, high production costs due to high labor costs, poor seed quality, etc. In the CLCA project we give particular attention to forage seed and feed production to reduce competition for stubbles, and zero-tillage to reduce moisture loss of soil and reduce erosion. All of these areas request adapted machinery. Successful introduction and adoption of machineries is crucial for scaling and sustainability.
