Description

A farm machine-hiring center set up in two villages in South India is showing how research-led interventions, based on a clear understanding of on the ground realities, can result in saving time, cost and labor for dryland farmers while creating jobs for rurally-based youth. ICRISAT studies show that besides improving on-farm operational efficiency and saving time, mechanized farming has the potential to increase yields by more than 10% and increase incomes by 12%.
