"We are working in west Africa on mechanization for conservation agriculture. We have made major improvements to the planter and worked with the local blacksmith to develop low-crown, low-pitch angle sweeps that increased the effective cutting width 20% compared to shovels typically used, and the sweep design decreased the pulling force by 21%. We will be back in Burkina Faso in the fall to evaluate crop progress and continue with equipment evaluation and innovation." - Dr. Harrigan
