PRACTICAL TRAINING ON AGRICULTURAL MACHINERIES SUPPORTED BY NESTLE COCOA PLAN

30 NOV 2016/ECUADOR

The use of agricultural machinery is one of the most important advances in agriculture, allowing savings in terms of working hours on farms, improvements in cropping techniques and increases in production.

Bearing the fact that farmers have difficulties in repairing their agriculture machines due to the high costs charged by specialized personnel, Nestle Cocoa Plan noticed the necessity of focusing its technical assistance in this important issue. That´s why, 40 cocoa plan farmers received a practical training on maintenance and repairing of agricultural machineries in the Zhucay community, Cañar province. The purpose of this learning was to help farmers acquire repairing skills for their own agricultural machinery, saving them substantial costs by using their own labour.
