Very good of you to start this group Victor. Would be great to get more folks, expecially from the private sector that are interested in small farm mechanization to join up. Would be even more lovely to see some statistics that your camp any may have on sales/numbers in China and outside. I came across a presentation by Prof Maohua Wang at an APCAEM meeting in THailand 2008 on mechanization in CHina. I recommend everyone to look at it. It has the best information that I have found so far but still lacking. He states there are nearly 17 M small tractors as opposed to 2.5 million large tractors in China. But does small tractors include small HP 4-wheel tractors as well as two-wheel tractors. We need to more information about impact of small verses large. And therefore need to disaggregated to: 1) understand the mechanization process there more thoroughly 2) support arguments (for donors, governments) for small farm mechanization; and 3) be able consider and apply lessons learned in other developing countries; and 4) if you are a manufacturer search and develop new export markets!!!

Scott,
Thanks for the input.
As you know, the ACIAR project I have recently completed has developed two seed drills for 2WT (power tiller).
There are videos of them and pictures in the agmachine forum.
The big step now is to develop some interest from the manufacturing sector to make some prototype units for world wide promotion.
Victor is showing some interest, but nothing from elsewhere.
I am willing to mail DVD and brochure to interested persons. There is a tined seed drill, and also a modification to the 2BG-6A rotary tillage seed drill.

There are two manufacturers now in Bangladesh, and I am told some interest from Kenya.

Perhaps the financial situation around the world is suppressing interest.
However I consider that these seed drills could be made for $US500 each, and would be a distinct improvement on the walking tractor drills which are currently available.

Dear Jeff,
Thanks for your comments.
As a manufacturer of walking tractors and power tillers.I sincerely hope that our power tillers could be fitted with the seed drill. What is th HP for the driving power to drive the seeder drill and other details.
Thanks,
Victor

Victor et al,
The units have been designed and made for 12HP Chinese made 2WT (power tiller). They attach to the standard trailer drawbar hitch of a 2WT with 20mm hole, and will probably fit all Chinese made 2WT. Power tillers with motors bigger than 12 HP would be OK. However with tractors less than 12HP, seed drills with fewer tines would have to be used.
The seed drills pictured will sow between one and four rows of most crops, depending on soil conditions.
They are both suitable for traditional tillage systems where the soil is plowed, and conservation agriculture systems where the residue is retained and the weeds controlled by other means (no plowing).

There is also a model for Siam Kubota (Thai made) 2WT. The seed drill is exactly the same - only the adapter to attach to the trailer hitch is different.

I fully support this initiative for direct seeder attachments for walking tractors. They have great potential in Asia but hopefully also in Africa.
thanks
Josef

Josef et al,
Thank you for your comment. In my opinion much of the engineering work on direct drill (no tillage) seeders for walking tractors has been done. There are various examples of both the tined drill and the rotary tillage strip till drill being evaluated and now working in Bangladesh. There have also been some farmer sales, although limited at this time.
A small batch of tined no tillage drills are being made in Tanzania for trial in East Africa, and further R. & D. by ACT (African Conservation Tillage Network) is planned.
I am sure that this concept will work. However we have to have all of the other players (Govt. Depts. NGO's, farmer groups, Machinery manufacturers, financiers etc.) on side and actively doing promotion.
There has been some enquiry but unfortunately there has been little interest by farm implement manufacturers. One positive move would be an Initiative to fabricate a batch of these drills, possibly exhibit them at some farm shows, and then promote them to their dealer network. This requires some 'risk capital' from the manufacturers.
Right now I don't see this happening. The solution does not lie with Western implement manufacturers, as the landed cost in either South Asia or Africa is too expensive.
It would be good to see a low cost Asian or African manufacturer take up the challenge. Let us hope that the current discussions may lead to something more substantial developing.
