Experience has shown that a basic prerequisite for successful mechanisation of the agricultural sector requires a well-functioning supply chain. To draw lessons for achieving this goal, the FAO Rural Infrastructure and Agro-Industries Division commissioned three mechanisation supply chain case studies. The studies were conducted in Kenya, Paksitan and Brazil, and the information contained in them has been used as the basis for the analysis presented in this technical report. The main recommendations of this title are aimed at policy-makers in the public sector, although there is plenty to interest other stakeholders, especially machinery suppliers and mechanisation service providers. However, the ultimate beneficiaries are small-and medium-scale farmers who are the recipients of the services provided.
