Cropland management

  • National Seed cum Fertilizer Drill is used for sowing different crops such as wheat, barley, maize, peas, black grams, pulses etc. in prepared (tilled) fields with fertilizer. The machine is available in side wheel driving mechanism & central wheel driving mechanism. (Equipment : Seeder-Planter -- Power Source : Motorized/Fuel)

    Potential improvement: Speeding up of the sowing and fertilizing processes

  • Within the Research Project "Drought Tolerant Maize for Africa- DTMA", developed from 2006 to 2015 through the international partnership CGIAR ( Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research), led by the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT), a great number of maize drought - tolerant (DT) varieties have been released for each country involved (Angola, Benin, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Mali, Mozambique, Nigeria, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, Zimbabwe), on the basis of the specific climatic /agricultural context.

  • Mealie Brand Cultivator range is of robust construction and is ideal for general use on light, medium and heavy soils. The designs ensure rigid, positive width and high performance to sturdy and well-engineered implements for weeding, top soil loosening making small ridges. (Equipment : Residue Management -- Power Source : Animal)

    Potential improvement: Supporting the cropland cutting, spreading, breaking operations

  • The Multiple Seeder SAM Semeato is  an efficient, precise and robust machine appropriated for medium and large properties. It performs seeding of large grains such as corn, soybean, beans, cotton, sorghum and sunflower  and small grains such as wheat, barley, oats, rye and rice.

    Features:

    SEED AND FERTILIZER BOXES; DRIVE WHEEL (The external drive wheels are articulated and with constant pressure in any position, maintaining metering accuracy because the tires are always in contact with the soil. It also promotes greater stability of the machine in tilted areas.)

  • The product was developed for treatment and/or preparation of soil for planting (Pre-Planting & Post Planting). STERISOIL will kill unwanted insects and worms and will sterilize the soil in the beds before planting commence. STERISOIL replace products like bromide that are dangerous to work with as well as harmful to the environment. STERISOIL is environmentally friendly and safe for humans, animals and plants.

    Problem addressed: Possible presence of insects and worms in the soil.

    Potential improvement: The product kills unwanted insects/worms, sterilizing the soil.

  • The Uniekum in-line Vlakvark Harvester has been designed for typical South-African soil types and conditions. To make provision for a variety of individual requirements, different models and option packages are available. The harvester can be ordered in three standard widths. Standard on all models is the double web configuration with a shaker for each web. The webs can be ordered in various pitch lengths.

  • The RZTO system is based on the phenomenon that, at a depth of a few meters, soil maintains a relatively stable temperature that approximates the mean annual air temperature and is unaffected by daily or seasonal air temperature fluctuations. The underground temperature is always colder during the summer and hotter during the winter than the top soil temperature.

  • The Urea Deep Placement (UDP) technique, developed by the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) and International Fertilizer Development Center (IFDC), is a good example of a climate-smart solution for rice systems. The usual technique for applying urea, the main nitrogen fertilizer for rice, is through a broad-cast application. This is a very inefficient practice, with 60 to 70 percent of the nitrogen applied being lost, and contributes to GHG emissions and water pollution.

  • Alternate Wetting and Drying (AWD) is a  rice management practice developed by IRRI. The practice reduces water use by up to 30% and methane emissions by 48% without impacting yield. With efficient nitrogen use and application of organic inputs to dry soil, the practice can reduce emissions even further, enhance nutrient efficiency, and deter insect infestation. AWD has been field tested and validated by rice farmers in Bangladesh, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Philippines, Myanmar, and Vietnam.
