STEP KENYA Introduces Small Scale Mechanization

A cost-effective Weeding Machine (Paddle Weeder) with added accessories of a weeder blade and two brush cutter blades which cost $450 and weighs 12 kg would suffice in place of a land tiller which costs $1150 and weighs 90 kg, in soft soil conditions. An added advantage of the former is that it is lighter in comparison and thus easier for youth to handle. The cost difference allows us to expand STEP participation in other schools or diversify in other project areas.
