How the government can help Ethiopian farmers

Post by Ethwar » 19 Jul 2019, 05:09

1. $100 million should be used to import modern equipment every year and spare parts must be made inside Ethiopia. I vote for Germany's Fendt and Massey Ferguson.

2. GMO seeds should be made available to farmers for cheap price.

3. Fertilizers should be available cheaply, hopefully in 2020 Ethiopia can start producing fertilizers inside Ethiopia saving foreign currency and making it cheaper.

4. Loan these equipment to farmers by having multiple options for them to payback. Give them 5-10 year monthly payments for them to payback the cost of the equipment.
