Modern Farming Techniques in Tanzania

modern farming techniques in tanzania

Farming and farm equipment has changed dramatically from the early days in Tanzania. At that time, agriculture consisted of clearing the land of trees and brush, tilling the land with a plough, and planting a single crop repeatedly until the land was depleted. Once the land was unfertile and botched to produce a crop, the agro-pioneers just pulled up stakes and moved west to the next land piece. Even as the country rapidly expanded, west farming continued to evolve. As crop farming developed, harvesting farm equipment and machinery also evolved.

The introduction of the combine harvester and mechanization practices was a major leap forward in this technology. The combine was a self-propelled machine that generally cut and threshed grain in one step. This machine increased grain production radically. Like a third-world country, Tanzania has a long way to go before it becomes self-sustainable and can boost its exports to a great extent.  Farm machinery has taken huge leaps forward in Tanzania and other African countries. The industrial revolution has changed farming beyond recognition and transformed man-power to machine-power. Now farms work with a range of machines, but time-tested technologies’ like tractors, harvesters, and irrigation systems remain the most widely used machine on Tanzanian farms. Combine harvesters from various brands such as Kubota have taken one job away from tractors; however, tractors still do the vast majority of work on modern farms due to their versatility. Due to the variety of implements and attachments, tractors lend themselves to a huge variety of tasks on any farm and are an extremely valuable tool for farmers.

The smallholder agriculture farmers and intermediaries can reap the full-advantages of modern-farming methodologies, and rural farmers can adapt quickly to the innovative mechanization and modernized farming techniques seamlessly. The aims of modern agricultural methods are two; one is to have a very high yield of the farm produce. Second, it is to get a good profit out of the farm products.  To achieve these, adequate input to the farm is very important. The bottom line is that innovation is the key factor in modern-agriculture, and Tanzania is slowly transforming into a completely modernized agriculture country and has a long path to cover. The industry as a whole is facing enormous challenges, from rising costs of supplies, a shortage of labor, and changes in consumer preferences for transparency and sustainability. There is increasing recognition from agriculture corporations that solutions are needed for these challenges.

Farm Mechanization process in Tanzania

Farmers are facing pressures and uncertainties. At the same time, new opportunities for new farming are emerging. These changes will be useful and can have a lasting impact on the farming industry. Almost 1 billion people live in hunger and live in extreme poverty. Many are small farmers in developing countries. Their failure or success determines whether they have enough to eat and send their children to school. Now the structure of agricultural production in the third world has changed in the last two decades. Various agricultural research institutes have promoted the adoption of industrial methods. These new high farming technology methods like combining harvesters, mechanization processes, and precision farming benefit all the farmers, especially the poor in third-world countries like Tanzania, Africa.

Agriculture is the most important part of Tanzania’s economy. The land connotes as a vital asset in ensuring food security and various exports with the nine main crops inclusive of rice, maize, sorghum, millet, wheat, cassava, potatoes, bananas, and so forth. The agricultural industry contributes to the country’s foreign exchange earnings and is a pivotal part of the economical structure. When Tanzania gained independence in 1967, agriculture was at the center of its overall developmental plans.

With more than 80% of contribution to the overall economy from farm inputs and outputs, Tanzania is picture-perfect for adopting farming mechanization and modernization processes. According to reports, recent signs of transformation in Tanzania’s agricultural sector offer encouraging opportunities for acceleration of growth, job creation, and poverty reduction if urgent steps are taken to improve the sector’s policy and regulatory environment and investments. The Tanzanian agriculture sector provides livelihoods for more than half of the population and more than three-quarters of its poor population.

Mechanization is essential for Tanzania’s core agricultural development, and farm mechanization can directly deliver increased productivity, the transformation of the agricultural and farming sector, and the dynamic shift from human-powered crop cultivation to mechanized production mode. From combine harvesters, precision implements, modern-tools, and so on, the mechanization process has always proved beneficial. Mechanization is directly proportional to increased output of higher value crop and food products that culminate towards an improved livelihood for small and medium-sized farmers. With different problematic constraints ranging from lesser mechanization, unskilled labor, obsolete technology, and the overall dependence on unreliable conditions hinder the development of agricultural structure in Tanzania. With the infusion of mechanization processes and harvesters, Tanzania can certainly increase raw materials’ access to feed the country’s industrial and export demands.

How Kubota Combine Harvesters Work in Tanzania?

Kubota Combine Harvesters in Tanzania

From the spice groves and palm-fringed beaches of Zanzibar to the Serengeti’s excellent plains and the snow-capped peak of Kilimanjaro, Tanzania can claim the greatest variation in not only altitude on the continent but also some of its most exotic locations. But despite the richness of culture, landscape, and wildlife, Tanzania still has a long way to go to become self-sustainable in terms of economy and agricultural production. With development being accelerated and expedited regionally, the sudden increase in population and the demand for crops have increased. The government, farming sector, and the various intermediaries in Tanzania are employing the usage of modern farming methods and usage of modern-farming machines inclusive of the Kubota Combine Harvesters to boost the economy, food production, and agriculture yields comprehensively. 

With rice production being increased globally and in African countries such as Tanzania, now is the time to infuse the latest farming methodologies and modern-machinery to take advantage. Before the invention of the combine harvester’s technology, farmers in Tanzania spent long-hours in the farmlands. The combine harvester has infused productivity, and farmers are able to harvest on-time and in a highly-effective, industrious and effectual manner.

Modern farming methodologies and machines like the Kubota Combine Harvester are making the agricultural process easier by infusing more workforce and seamless execution of farming practices.  In Tanzania, farmer parents no longer have to depend on their children or their kin to work on the farm as they move towards mechanization. In particular, African countries and Tanzania play a significant part in rice and other global exports. Technology being the limiting factor in Tanzania’s production of crops is now being dealt with by integrating modern-farming methods and combining harvesters.  Kubota’s combine harvesters have helped leap and bounds when it comes to mechanization, rice transplanting, harvesting, and growing while increasing the overall efficiencies. With rice farming in Asia rapidly mechanizing, combine harvesters help developing countries like Tanzania retrofit and modernize their agro-industries and expedite the best yields in a short amount of time. With Kubota’s reliable technology, combined with its quality, make their combine harvesters the best in the business. Kubota, a renowned Japanese brand, provides two dedicated combine harvester models that come with multiplied and enhanced harvesting efficiencies and power that help reduce the harvesting time and ensure continual operational effectiveness, which is a pivotal factor in countries like Tanzania.
