This book derives from the first ATNESA workshop held in Lusaka, Zambia. It contains some 85 edited papers prepared by 105 authors from 20 countries. The text is supported by more than 400 ill. ustrations, including 175 photographs.

Within the theme of Improving animal traction technology the papers focus on several important topics, including profitability; animal management; tillage and weeding; implement supply; gender issues; technology transfer; transport; and diversifying operations.

This book provides a wealth of ideas and experiences concerning animal traction in many countries and will be valuable to all people interested in this important field of agricultural development, especially those involved in training, extension, research, development, planning and infrastructural support.
