Simple mechanization for dug-out pond construction – Practical Note

Digging ponds is a labour demanding activity when there is no access to excavators and lorries. Nevertheless, most small-sized (<1000 m3) dugout ponds in rural areas are dug by hand. Labour
is required for digging, for removing the soil and to transport it to the disposal area. If all these activities are done manually, there are also some
simple technologies that allow the construction of ponds with the aid of draft animals. The Practical Note on “Simple mechanization for dug-out ponds construction”  is available Simple mechanization for dug out ponds construction_SF
