Farmers use motorbikes to plough land: “If it works, it’s not stupid”


A video that went viral on social media proves that Africa is the home of creativity and innovation. The video shows a group of farmers ploughing the fields using a motorbike, most likely because they did not have access to a tractor.

South Africans took to social media to express their pride that Africans always seem to find a way to overcome challenges. One user was particularly proud of how Africans found any way to work their land,

Many felt that if it works, it’s not a stupid idea especially considering how expensive tractors are. Other users pointed out that it was a great idea but would be quite problematic if you had a 1000 hectares to plough through because it would be a long walk, while others questioned how much fuel it would consume.
