At our recent Board Meeting, we discussed starting a new effort, supporting a farming community in Somalia.  We're still considering this proposal, but we are looking forward to expanding our operations.  See our webpage to learn more about how we are supporting farming communities in developing countries!  
TractorShare is dedicated to empowering farmers and rural communities in developing nations by lending the tools and providing the know-how to build a secure, sustainable, and healthy society.

We're shipping a new 3-point hitch for the Farmall H tractor supporting the Apatun Farmer's Cooperative.  This will dramatically increase the tractor's work in clearing and cultivating operations!

Our Chair, Dr. Kim Roberts, is currently on an assessment mission to NW Yucatan, Mexico, where we are working with the Apatun Farmer's Cooperative as they improve their crop yield, institute green farming initiatives (including the cessation of burning fields), and adopt no-till farming practices.

Good morning, nonprofit world, I'd be curious if anyone would like to share their experiences working/teaming with the private sector, a corporate social responsibility (CSR) partner? Did it benefit your organization? Were there challenges with competing interests? Do you see partnering with CSRs as a viable long-term strategy for your nonprofit? What were your reasons for partnering with a CSR partner? Thanks for your thoughts. TractorShare.

Our newest package of implements for the Apatun Rural Agricultural Society of the Yucatan Penninsula shipped out today from Panama City, FL via Linea Peninsular Shipping. It should arrive in Mexico on Tuesday and once in place, will significantly add to the crop yield and production of this burgeoning farmer's cooperative.

We're happy to announce a grant of $4,500 to the Apatun Farmers Association of the Yucatan, which will support the purchase of a corn picker!  Picking corn by hand is not an efficient use of our farmer's time or skills, and this should really increase their productivity during the next harvest!  Congratulations!  www.tractorshare.org

Here are photos from Kim's assessment visit to the Yucatan Peninsula, where we are supporting the Mayan farmers with a tractor, implements, and technical support. The first-year assessment is that crop yield has increased by approximately 30%.

Did you know...when our TractorShare partners in the Yucatan, Mexico, agreed to work with us, they also pledged to stop the burning of fields? Not only has their crop yield increased, their adoption of no-till farming techniques is saving topsoil and mitigating the effects of erosion. When neighboring farmers saw that our team was having success, they also stopped burning their fields! Green farming techniques can save the land and increase crop yield.

In remembrance of the devastating earthquake that struck Haiti two years ago, here is a picture of our Chairwoman, Dr. Kim Roberts, turning over an industrial tractor to the Haitian Volunteer Firefighters Association for immediate use in recovery operations. To-date, only half of the debris in the capital of Port au Prince has been removed.
