Egypt introduces new water-saving equipment to smallholders

Egypt has introduced new equipment capable of preparing and cultivating land with less time and effort, increasing yields by 15-20% and saving up to 25% of irrigation water, according to SciDev.Net. The Raised Bed Machine (RBM) is the brainchild of the International Centre for Agriculture Research in Dry Areas (ICARDA) and was designed to suit wheat, alfalfa, and barley, but Egyptian farmers have managed to also use it for fertilization.
