This is the Spanish translation for the "Equipment and Tools for Small-Scale Intensive Crop Production" publication. This publication focuses on equipment and tools for intensive crop production on a small-
scale commercial farm. It details equipment and hand tools for soil preparation, planting, weed

soil and to plant health. Lists of further resources and tool and equipment suppliers are included.
