Plow with spreading plant ash
Plow with spreading plant ash

This is a special design for Congolese farmers. Because of the tropical rainforest climate in Congo, the soils in many areas are acidic, and plant ash can improve the alkalinity of the soils. The inspiration for the design come from combination of plow and aquilegia. This product could get the local peopleto plow the fields and throw ash into the fields at the same time. It is a combination of hand-pulled plough and cart. It can be ploughed or fertilized. Users can choose to pull or push it. The bottom of the box containing plant ash isprovided with a crack, and when the chuck is opened, the plant ash will fall down.
