Farm mechanization to enhance sustainable productivity

Recently, the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Centre (CIMMYT) provided a five-day training for farmers drawn from different states aimed to promote farm mechanization and to enhance sustainable productivity at the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI).

CIMMYT takes farm mechanization scheme from Africa Research in Sustainable Intensification for the Next Generation (Africa RISING) initiative and creates opportunities for smallholder farm households to move out of
hunger and poverty through sustainably intensified farming systems that improve food, nutrition, and income security.

The Farm Mechanization and Conservation Agriculture for Sustainable Intensification (FACASI)
project addresses the decline of farm power in Africa. The project is working with smallholder farmers to deliver small mechanization based on inexpensive, two-wheeled tractors and introduce power saving technologies.

  1. Hey Guys!!! I got my blank ATM card from CARLOS FERNANDEZ. My blank ATM card can withdraw €3,000 daily. I got it from him last Month and now I have €70,000 for free. The card withdraws money from any ATM machines and there is no name on it, it is not traceable and now i have money for the installation of my gas plant station and enough money for me and my 3 kids. I am really happy i met Fernandez. Fernandez sent the card through UPS Service and i got it in 4 working days. Go get yours now. He’s giving it out to help people even if it is illegal at least its from the banks treasury not individuals account but it helps a lot and no one ever gets caught. The card works in all countries except Philippines, Mali and Nigeria. Fernandez email address is contact him now and end your suffering be discrete when you write him cause he works without no traces so follow accordingly until your atm gets to you otherwise he will decline to do business with you
