How could we take advantage of technology to improve efficiency, especially of weeding and preparing the land, and to increase the productivity per hectare of small-scale agricultural producers in Cabo Delgado?


    We have implemented a combination of technological improvements to make the removal of weeds that negatively affect agricultural production more efficient. It is the agricultural task that requires the most time throughout the year, and it is carried out especially by women:

    • Use of bike-hoes to eliminate weeds faster and more ergonomically.

    • Herbicides made with cashew oil to avoid the use of toxic products.

    • Bike sprayer: more efficient and low cost pesticide sprayers made from bicycles.

    • Vegetable mulch: ground cover with plant remains to hinder the growth of weeds.
