Wheat harvesting near Zomin, Djizzak, Uzbekistan

Our ADB Technical Assistance project has evaluated the financing, procurement and operation of 49 "Dominator 130"-type combine harvesters (manufactured by the CLAAS company of Germany) in three focus areas in central Uzbekistan. The evaluation included financing methods, ownership structures, the logistics of the harvest, technical operation of the harvesters themselves and the financial impact on those farmers and service enterprises borrowing to purchase the machines.
