Plowing Fields and Improving Productivity

Members of Lambi Fund’s staff recently returned from a site visit in Southern Haiti to visit the Ox-Plow Service project.  This was an incredibly exciting visit as members of  the Organization of Farmers from Besi and Klona (OPBK)  have recently began plowing fields with their newly minted ox-plow service.  The oxen have been trained and are successfully responding to commands by the ox-plow operators.   Members of the organization gleefully demonstrated how the use of oxen greatly increases productivity in the fields.  By using two oxen, a plow and an operator who directs the oxen, fields are being plowed in record time.  What used to take 16 men working day in and day out to plow crops, the oxen have plowed in a matter of minutes.  In fact, many of the crops would not get plowed in time prior to the end of the season.  This year, as OPBK members eagerly explained, all fields in the area will be planted with plenty of time remaining – no more backbreaking plowing they fields by hand necessary!
