A somewhat similar lightweight toolcarrier, also designedmainly as a seederis the Shivaji Multipuqmse Farming Machine developed under the AICRPDA at Sholapur, Maharashtra. This comprises a single square section bar supported on two metal wheels designed for implement transport and not load-carrying. The main seed/fertilizer units can be mounted onto the toolbar, ascan chisel points and intercultivation tines. All implements can be raised and lowered. This machine has alsobeen commercially produced.

Work beganon the Mochudi toolcarrier in 1971 with assistance from Oxfam and the Mennonite Central Committee. The toolcarrier was intended as part of a drylands minimum tillage system, and the design concept was influ‘enced by the till-plant system developedby the University of Nebraska for the southwestern United States. The minimum tillage was considered important to overcome the problem of draft power since less wealthy farmers owning only four cattle or a few donkeys sometimes did not cultivate at all due to their perceived shortage of draft power.

Thus the Mochudi toolcarrier was designed to be pulled by just one pair of animals. The relatively high cost of the implement for such farmers was justified by the supposition that farmers owning a few cattle would be able to afford the implement by selling the oxen that would be made redun- Fig. 3-12: Drawing of Mochudi toolcarrier “Makgonatsotlhe” (Eshlemq 1975).
