As the global population continues to grow every year, so too does the demand for agricultural products. To continue feeding the world without damaging the environment is one of the greatest challenges faced by society, and can only be achieved by increasing the efficiency and sustainability of agricultural production.

This project is about filling the gap between modern farming technology which requires skill, more cost and higher tech and traditional or ancient technology still widely used in many countries of the world which does not require much skill, labour-based and lower cost. The mechanism of semi-automated farming technology is very simple. First, there is a C- channel structure (the green structure) fixed with the farming ground at the side of both ends. Then there will be another C-channel structure (the yellow structure) which have roller bearings at both end. The roller bearings are made to fit the c-channel of the green structure. This will help the farmer move forward and backward with very little force. Then, there will be a third structure (the red structure) which has roller bearing to assist the farmer move left and right with minimum force. The forward mechanism is driven by the pulley (the brown structure) attached with rope (the blue structure). As seen the pulley and rope will force the red structure applies the force downward making the farming process very easy. The mechanism is powered by either solar batteries or rechargeable batteries and according to my calculation analysis, the farming process will consume less power because of the mechanism of the bearing. This farming method will fill the gap between modern farming technology which requires skill, more cost and higher tech and traditional or ancient technology still widely used in many countries of the world which does not require much skill, labour-based and lower cost. Most of the undeveloped farming technology depends on animals because the current farming technology involves acquiring skill like driving and operating tractors and such. Most undeveloped farmers which are the majorities cannot afford the price and does not have skills to learn with a reasonable period of time. But using this method will ease the mechanism while upgrading their farming technology.

    I have dedicated my life for invention and research because not only I have big dreams but also it is my only way out of poverty. We all have a talent we know or did not find out yet. Mine happens to be inventing. I discovered this talent of mine when I was in second year student during my university life. Starting from that point everything seemed not important except creating new ideas. So, until now I have invented more than 50 inventions which are new to the world and the rest are intended for Ethiopia that will change the life of many people including mine. But because of poverty, theft and many reasons I could not manage to make it. But all that matter is I will never give up. I will invent until and after I become successful. That makes me a strong entrepreneur. My skills are aided with a mechanical engineering degree on design, production and sales expertise.
