Given the soil conditions in Africa, the robust utility tractors from TAFE with optimized relevant technology have proven for their dependability and calibre.
This trust was on display in Uganda, when Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni handed over 40 TAFE tractors to support 600 farmers in the Ankole Region. TAFE tractors have proven their mettle in working with vivid soil conditions and for a wide range of applications to cultivate various geographies around the world. In addition to the 40 tractors, 40 disc ploughs, 9 disc harrows and 9 tipping trailers were also handed out to 40 clusters of farmers to increase production of milk in the cattle corridor districts of Lyantonde, Mitooma, Sheema, Ibanda, Isingiro, Mbarara, Ntungamo, Kiruhuura and Sembabule at the Mbarara Zonal Agricultural Research and Development Institute.
Hailing the farmers’ commitment to mechanization of agriculture, President Museveni said the farmers contributed 20 percent of the expense towards the procurement of the tractors and implements. Most of the farmers intend to utilize the TAFE tractors to plant pasture for cattle among other utility.
Built to the taste of the land, a TAFE tractor is synonymous with being tough and high standards of precision build quality; housing the expertise of TAFE acquired over decades of its being.
