We Ethiopians everywhere are blessed with land, livestock, water, natural resources and human resources. But we have not yet used these sources properly and wisely. Yet farmers strive for traditional ways of farming, which means wearing yokes on their shoulders. Unless we adopt agricultural mechanization and technologies, ranging from land preparations to post-harvest tasks, it will be a pipe dream that joins the ranks of developed countries.
Several tasks still need to be performed to get the expected product and productivity. The country needs well-trained farmers who have exposure to developing technologies. It needs farmers who have adapted to agricultural activities such as preparing land, growing seeds, using mechanization, irrigating land, applying a cluster approach and technologies and the like.
Of course, mechanization saves human strength, time, money and increases productivity and quality. It decreases before and after the harvest loses. The result is that the country facilitates facilitating mechanisms and mechanization techniques and other agricultural inputs for farmers, livestock farmers and livestock farmers on every harvest calendar. The holes must be examined. According to scientists, the soil of our cultivated land contains 43% acidity, 5% salt and 11% Verity sol that reduce the production and productivity of the nation. That is why scientists and other stakeholders need to address such bottlenecks.
Livestock is the other resources that the nation has not managed to organize and to use cleverly and correctly. Nowadays, meat and milk products are not accessible to every individual; due to the absence of sufficient products. That's why something has to happen. That is why the Ministry of Agriculture and Animal Resources has organized a special event in connection with making the Linkage Advisory Council Agricultural Development Partners lively (ADPLAC). The meeting focused on combating such bottlenecks by creating a link between stakeholders. The ADPLAC meeting was held annually with the help of multiple stakeholders. The purpose of the Linking Advisory Council for Agricultural Development Partners (ADPLAC) is to exchange experiences, to learn lessons and to solve development partners' problems with regard to the implementation of the agrarian transformation agenda. It is also the intention to take a joint direction for the implementation of the future agricultural transformation agenda.
After evaluating the 10th council discussions, stakeholders had discussed many issues related to the 11th Advisory Partnership for the Development of Agricultural Development Partners (ADPLAC) that took place in Adama, the Ethiopian state of Oromia, from 11 to 12 August 2018.
ADPLAC helps sustainable, broad and inclusive agricultural development to play an important role in all aspects.
Stakeholders have activated that ADPLAC helps the agricultural sector by accelerating the growth of agricultural production with a gradual shift to high
value of raw materials; eliminating national food; the establishment of a market system that benefits farmers and non-agricultural actors; improving the implementation capacity: institutional and human resources (attitudes, skills and competence).
ADPLAC is organized to strengthen farmers' training centers by actively increasing community and capacity building, improving agricultural knowledge and information services; facilitating mainstreaming of market coupling, gender, youth and nutrition; strengthening environmentally aware agricultural practices; ; the development of human resources and institutional arrangements, and the creation of links between the main partners in agricultural development. In addition, it improves customer-oriented and multi-actor advisory expansion services. It also means that strong and dynamic result-based monitoring, evaluation and learning is set up for continuous improvement of the delivery of effective expansion services.
ADPLAC needs cooperation that requires integration, participation and dialogue; appreciative attitude and mutual respect; teamwork and teambuilding; reflection and refinement; thinking outside fixed frames.
On August 11, 2018, Adama opened the 11th Agricultural Development Partners Linkage Advisory Council (ADPLAC), the State Secretary for Agriculture and Animal Resources, Dr. Eyasu Abraha, and noted that the nation has received a 306 million revenue important crops. aimed at getting 375 million quintals at the end of this tax. Productivity is also expected to reach 27.3 quintal per hectare. The Secretary of State urged stakeholders to work hard on natural resources (soil and water conservation) to ensure a sustainable development of the nation. He also recalls that the nation has international recognition called "future policy distinction" in the case of soil and water conversations (water shadow) as an example that initiates people to do better. On the occasion dr. Eyasu emphasized that each individual must develop different activities to increase the yields of high-value crops in order to feed the industrial parks that have been torn in the country and to export returns to the world market; otherwise it will remain on the paper.
According to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, all stakeholders must work hard to encourage farmers to use better agricultural technologies to eradicate poverty. As far as he is concerned, MoA is transforming the traditional way of farming into mechanized agriculture by introducing agricultural inputs and addressing them on the basis of farmers' demands.
