This video showcases an impact from one of field demonstrations under a collaboration between CAVAC and Bayon Heritage Holding Group. Our joint effort aimed at promoting livelihood of cassava farmers through improving fertiliser and farming practices. In addition, our work also helps improve information services on cassava management practice through a private sector like Bayon Heritage Holding Group.
Eli Rice Seeder uses air pressure to shoot rice seed directly into wet soil. It reduces seed rate to only 30 to 100 kg from 200 to 300 kg in manual broadcast. The tool won the Patents for Humanity Award in 2018.
CAVAC supports Agri-Smart in marketing and outreach of the tool.
