Team 16: Cambodian Field of Dreams

Introduction

World Renew is planning to introduce the process of fertilizing rice fields with legumes, before or after planting season, to Cambodian farmers. This project seeks to mechanize and speed up the legume planting process, making the process attractive to the farmers. To achieve this, a piece of farming equipment will be contrived, which can be used by one person to plant beans in a field. The planting consists of a two-step process: digging a small hole and inserting beans.
