  2. 2. 2 + Agri-Smart We believe our customers to be entrepreneurial and resourceful. By learning from them and giving them access to tools and education, we provide them with opportunities to improve their lives. Please read on to find out more.
  3. 3. 3 + Agri-Smart’s Products Technology that improves the livelihoods and food security of subsistence farmers BB2C is a social enterprise working to improve the livelihoods and food security of subsistence farmers. We do this by offering profit making, and labor saving agriculturalsolutions. The Rudi Khmer Pump improves vegetable production and water management, providing vital access to water for household use and animal husbandry. Our rice seeder ensures farmers attain higher yields and improved incomes. It does this by planting 1 hectare of rice in rows in less than 2 hours; a fraction of the time that it takes to transplant seedlings. This means farmers can improve the results of their time-tested methods with less intense labor. To learn more about how we work with farmers to go from subsistence to profit, please visit us at www.bb2c.org.
  4. 4. 4 + Why choose the Rudi Khmer Pump? Rudi Khmer Pump is a two-chamber suction pump operated manually by use of two treadle arms. It’s designed to allow customers access to ground and surface water. This pump is durable, low cost and easy to maintain. It allows farmers to increase yields, irrigate crops easily as well as to care for animals. It also allows our customers to perform essential household duties such as maintaining and using toilets and washing clothes. The pump is designed to get maximum water pressure with minimal effort. An individual who weighs 20 kg or more can operate the pump, which means children, the elderly, pregnant women, and some disabled people can access water. The Rudi Khmer Pump is manufactured in Cambodia, which means all sales benefit local entrepreneurs. • Less labor intensive farming • Provides food security • Income generation and economicdevelopment • Water management and conservation • Improvessanitation • Manufacturing in Cambodia means local businesses benefit • Portable • Easy to maintain and repair • Parts are available at local market • Environmentallyfriendly solution • BB2C’s field staff provides training, set-up, and technicalsupport.

  7. 7. 7 Why choose our rice seeder? Benefits The traditional rice planting method of manual transplanting is effective, but very labor intensive. As labor in rural Cambodia is becoming scarce, many farmers are forced to use less effective planting methods such as throwing (broadcasting) seeds into the field. With Agri-Smart’s new Rice Seeder, there is now a low labor way to achieve the same results as farmers’ time tested methods. With this devise, a team of 2 can plant a hectare in 2 hours. This is huge labor savings compared to the 40 labor-days required to manually transplant the same field. The seeder uses air pressure to seed the ground in rows, which allows each plant enough space to grow, and reduces by half the total amount of seed used when compared to current methods. Rows also allow for tool-assisted and chemical-free weeding, as well as more targeted and efficient fertilizing. Furthermore, crop yields using our machine meet or exceed the results of transplanted fields. • Less labor intensive planting • Improved crop yields • Saves farmers’ money on seed and fertilizer • Eliminates use of environmentally harmfulherbicides • Income generation and economic development • Manufacturing in Cambodia means local businesses benefit • Portable • Easy to maintain and repair • BB2C’s field staff provides training and technical support Rice Seeder benefits
  8. 8. 8 + The rice seeder can plant 12 rows of rice spaced 25cm (10in.) apart, with an adjustable seed density range of 50 to 200 seeds per meter. The seeder can carry 20kg (44 lbs.) of seed, weighs 15 kg (33 lbs.), with a 11kg (24 lbs.) motor. It’s 4 m (13 ft.) in length, 0.5 m (1.5 ft.) in width, and 1.2 (4 ft.) in height. The seeder’s weight distribution makes it easy to carry and operate. Number of Rows 12 Row spacing Adjustable seed density range (per row) Planting speed 25 cm (10 in.) 50 to 200 seeds per meter Number of operators 2 hours per hectare (0.8 hours per acre) 2 Seed capacity 20 kg (44 lb.)

  9. 9. 9 + Agri-Smart Eli Seeder at work: 1.Seeder vs 2.Broadcasting vs 3.Transplanting Wastes seeds |Difficult to weed | Uneven growth leads to lower yields and use of herbicides 2 people can plant 1 hectare in 2 hours | Savings of $200 per hectare | Saves seeds |Easy to weed | Rows lead to higher yields and avoid use of herbicides. Easy to Weed Requires more seeds than seeder |Labor intensive, takes 42 people one day to transplant 1 hectare | Uneven growth leads to lower yields.
