Before the arrival of scale appropriate agricultural machinery such as the power tiller operated seeders (PTOS) and the CSISA MI project, seeding jute—a type of plant with fibers that can be spun into coarse, strong threads—had been an exhaustive manual venture in Baliandangi in the Rajbari District of Bangladesh. The laborious task of preparing land for seeding, manually sowing seeds by digging soil, and simultaneously placing seeds, posed a nearly insurmountable challenge. A power tiller operated seeder mitigated these challenges. Crop health improved through uniform seeding depth and plant spacing. Overall, this would enable farmers to save on seeds, cut costs, increase yields and have quality time for family.
