Togo and Morocco launch joint agricultural mechanization training program

(Togo First) - The Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock recently launched an agricultural mechanization program, in partnership with the Moroccan Office Cherifien des Phosphates (OCP Africa). 

Overall, 120 participants will take part in the program. They will be equipped with skills and tools to help them be more productive and earn more.

The participants will be divided into two groups. One group will gather 100 people who will learn how to operate tractors and 20 others who will learn how to maintain the vehicles. The second group will gather the Tractor and Agricultural Machinery Driving Schools (ECTMs) from the Central, Kara, and Savanes regions.

Training young tractor operators

Specifically designed for young individuals aspiring to become tractor operators without prior experience, this training will provide them with essential skills to effectively utilize advanced agricultural technologies. It is worth noting that the initiative is developed in collaboration with the Mohamed VI Polytechnic University (UM6P) through the African Academy of Industrial Training (AAIT).

Togo and Morocco, it is worth noting already have an agreement that aims to facilitate access to mechanization services in agriculture. Together, the partners also launched a pilot agricultural mechanization center in Kpalimé.
