Effective use of agricultural machinery for optimising cropping systems

Plant Production Science | Research for Rural Development

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals  (UNSDGs) frameworks identifies 'Zero Hunger' as its 2nd goal. The aim is to achieve 'Zero Hunger' by 2030. Against this backdrop, Plant Production Science invites you to browse recent case studies on how agricultural machinery effectively optimises cropping systems for rural development. The hope is to inspire further studies in this field as we join the global effort towards eradicating global hunger.
