October 2, 2015 Ethiopia: a country rife with challenges and a nation of farmers ready to take them on. With the land fragmented and the soil difficult to cultivate, the best quality equipment is essential. Oxen and a maresha ard plow are labour-intensive, expensive for farmers with no ox of their own and bad for the soil, while four-wheeled tractors are too unwieldy, not to mention beyond the means of most farmers. Enter the two-wheeled tractor, easy to manoeuvre and ideal for tilling the soil, sowing/planting and weeding. Tebebe Solomon, managing director of TGT Enterprise, came to with an idea for a project that could give Ethiopian farmers a leg up.
