E4C Visualized | Start your engines

contributor: Rob Goodier

How the world’s farmers do their work varies about as much as the types of crops and the countries where they’re growing. This informative little chart shows the different ways that small-plot farmers use machines and animals to grow, harvest and create service jobs. Roving entrepreneurs in China hire out their mechanized harvesting services, for example, while small family-run farms in Bangladesh own their own extremely low-cost pumps, tillers and tractors. Thanks to the International Food Policy Research Institute for putting this infographic together and allowing us to publish it.
