With the objective of promoting in-country skill & technical know-how, AMC engages in the research & development of agricultural machinery. Our outputs are working prototypes which we regularly test and collect feedbacks from the farmers. The center have number of prototype machines researched and developed under AMC in 11th FYP. As a part of our strategy, AMC want to collaborate with the private fabricators to commercialize the successful prototypes by producing in mass and selling as any other goods. To bring that in to line, farm mechanization technology display and field day was conducted at AMC on date 31st May, 2018 with support of SFaMP 2 project, JICA. The program started with presentation, visit to display site, visit to quality section and potato digger field demonstration near AMC. During the presentation the Program Director explained on the mandates of AMC and highlighted on the successful technologies which were part of the 11th plan programme as an awareness to the participants. At the display site farmers raised lot of questions on mechanization and they were very much impressed with activities of AMC. The total of 70 participants attended the program. The management would like to thank Agriculture Sector, Paro and SFaMP 2 project for supporting this program successfully.
