Summary, etc. Farm-level data shows African rural households are far more dependent on labor markets, and much more inclined to hire mechanization services, than previously assumed. Governments must create an enabling environment to promote appropriate mechanization for small-scale farmers to promote sustainable intensification of food crops. Small-scale mechanization appropriately sized for small farms – such as using two-wheel tractors and direct planters – represents a shift away from conventional mechanization strategies dependent on large machines, leading to land consolidation and the disappearance of otherwise-productive small farms.
