The soil type, slope an& the cropping system. The subject of tied ridging was raised. Research trials had shown that in the semi-arid areas tied ridging can raise yields. Tied ridging is labour-intensive, but animals can be used effectively. Research on equipment and techniques for animal-powered ridging tying was being undertaken by ICRISAT and IITA/SAPGRAD, but it was too early to say whether the farmers would feel the enhanced yields would justify the extra work required to achieve them. There were questions about terracing.
Also a partially built bridge just outside the village on the road to Kamdbai and Makeni needed covering with wood to allow the possible use of an XIXcart, one of the items desired by the village. As the dominating project founder provided almost single-handed leadership, there was Ar~imal Power in Farming Systems FIELD VISITS lack of any clear leader to follow Mrs. Kamara, . and the t&m considered that in the long term this might lead to problems. There were doubts as to the suitability of the equipment being used.
