CA trials and no-till equipment

Meet Rachael Cox. She coordinates MasAgro experiments for CIMMYT. She showed me the conservation agriculture (CA) trials here at the El Bat├ín station.  These are long-term CA trials.





They's also developed a two-wheel tractor for no-till. I've seen these all over Asia, but they they are very expensive here because of the shipping from China.

They've designed a lot of equipment, and you can download the drawings here:
