The mechanization of agriculture in Senegal.

Mechanisation is a key strategy to realise production and productivity increases and, at the same time, protect resources and the climate. In its Agenda 2063, the African Union has declared its vision to ban the hand hoe. Machinery rings give smallholder farmers access to modern machinery. Existing machinery can be used more efficiently.

in a nutshell

The idea of a Machinery Ring

A machinery ring is a local self-help organisation of farmers who provide mutual support with mechanisation services. The machinery is individually owned and maintained but voluntarily made available to members oft he machinery rings on a full cost basis. A member farmer can be a provider of one service while s/he hires a different service from a fellow farmer.

Knowledge Transfer

Development Cooperation

Independent farmer organisations, cooperatives and machinery rings are essential factors in joint development for modernising agriculture in Africa. They are engines for increasing the agricultural productivity. These are lessons learnt in the development of agriculture in Germany and in Europe. Many employees oft the gemanr machinery rings have well founded work experience abroad. They stand for a usage-based knowledge transfer from farmer to farmer.

Development cooperation

Independent organisations of famers, cooperatives and machinery rings are essential factors in joint developments to modernise agriculture in Africa. They are the driving force behind increasing agricultural productivity. Many employees of the machinery rings in Germany have experience abroad. They stand for an application-based knowledge transfer from farmer to farmer.

Digital learning platform

Education and vocational education are basic modules of sustainable economic development. In order to make the use of machines sustainable, MR is also involved in the training and further education of the MR members in Senegal. The main focus is on the professional use of machinery and the improvement of cultivation conditions through small, practical units. The use of digital technologies offers potential for improving the quality of education and can complete practical trainings in many ways.

Agricultural portal Senegal

In ordert to ensure high capacity utilisation and thus profitability, larger machines, such as tractors are deployed regionally. Through a digital agricultural portal, the farmers can conveniently request assignments via app and organize them afterwarts. In this way, machine deployment is optimised and linked in a targeted manner. The simply structured app enables transparent administration and reduces effort.

The CSR-Team of machineryring

Social responsibility is a matter close to our heart.

No longer having to move from plot to plot with a hoe, but to cultivate larger areas mechanically is a dream of many people in Senegal. It is our task to make this dream come true by developing and promoting it further.
