Sustainable Agricultural Mechanization

Selection, testing and evaluation of agricultural machinery and equipment

Concentration on supply-side testing had been made indicative of the top-down approach which has frequently been applied to machinery selection. A user-responsive approach will require a reorientation of existing services, supported by revised arrangements for funding. The Bulletin further emphasizes that testing and evaluation activities should be substantially centred on farmers' fields.
