- Production Systems: general crop production
Many small farms rely on older tractors, which can pollute and can also be difficult to maintain. The farmer will convert an Allis-Chambers “G” from a gas engine to an electric one, and will then develop materials so that other farmers can do the same thing. The overall goals are to reduce pollution, improve quality of life, and improve the power and versatility of the original tractor. The plans and instructions will be posted to a Web site and available in printed format for anyone to use.
