Handover of New Holland products to GIZ “Agricultural Mechanisation and Technology for Smallholder Productivity” and “Green Innovation Centre” Projects in Ethiopia
The products were handed over during a ceremony in the Agricultural Training Center in Kulumsa, Ethiopia, attended by AMTP Senior Agricultural Expert, Dr. Tatek Woldu, MOENCO Agricultural and Industrial Equipment Sales Division Manager, Mr. Alehegn Gebru, New Holland Agriculture Africa Business Manager, Yasin Şeker and New Holland Agriculture Middle East & Africa Marketing Manager, Hakan Dönmezer.
The agricultural sector is considered as one of the major sectors driving growth in Ethiopia. About 80% of the Ethiopian population is active in agriculture, farming is dominated by smallholders. To improve smallholder farmers’ productivity and profitability and the performance of the agricultural sector, efficient and timely delivery of inputs to farmers as well as access to mechanisation and technology are important factors. In the Ethiopian Arsi Zone, Oromiya Region, where the two GIZ projects have the objectives to improve smallholder farmers’ productivity and profitability through innovations in the farming system, mechanisation service providers offer a range of mechanised field operation to smallholders.
