While the specifics of this video are not relevant for Africa, it shows the success of our modern Australian dryland no-till farming system. Here we use GM crops, fertilisers and herbicides to turn every drop of water into profit making grain for human consumption which is in high demand globally.
The spectacular drone footage shows the large size of the paddocks and farms, it illustrates how large scale trials can be conducted with modern GPS farming tools, you will see the Australian desert that backs onto this property which is the Crabtree's 2424 Gutha East Road, Morawa farm (google it) and it shows that wheat yields can reach 2.0 t/ha on soils that receive less than 160 mm of in-crop rainfall for the season. Enjoy :)
