Description

In February 2006, Sierra Leone implemented a food security program under the Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security. Dr. Sam Mondeh of the Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security presented farmers with equipment, including 136 tractors, for them to develop a mechanized farming system to maximize agricultural yield. The tractors were donated by Iran, Libya, and China to provincial towns of Kambia, Port Loko, Moyamba, Matru Jong, Bo, Pujehun, Kenema, Kailahun, Koinadugu, Bombali, and Kono. Additionally, Chinese technicians trained 60 people from Sierra Leone on mechanical cultivation system. Two trainers have arrived to prepare tractors and have donated 69 tractors and 8 combined harvesters.
