The international university of East Africa has patterned with global regenerators and manufactured the first ever tractor in Africa .this tractor has two unique aspects, unlike other tractors which are powered by diesel or gasoline engines, the ox-4 runs by electric hub motors, which are powered by four rechargeable batteries.
The ox-4 tractor is also simple to use and afford, its repairs are simple since it has no engine hence its uniqueness.
In Africa, tractors are only afforded by large-scale farmers, leaving smallholder farmers stuck on rudimentary ways of farming. Regenerators came together with IUEA to introduce farming equipment for mechanizing agriculture in Uganda, “and this was said by prof. Emeka Akaezuwa, the vice chancellor of IUEA
This collaboration was intended to introduce regenerative farming. This kind of farming does not require the farmer to plough the fields but ensures that the soil retains water, absorbs nutrients and stores carbon.
