Quick Action Saves Daman Farms

Quick Action Saves Daman Farms

On February 15, 2010, the Kandahar Provincial Reconstruction Team (PRT) received an urgent request from the World Food Program to help the people of Daman District repair their canals that had recently been damaged by severe flooding. If not repaired within three weeks, all of the year’s crops would be lost, risking serious economic instability. USAID’s Food Insecurity Response for Urban Populations (FIRUP) program stepped in to help, quickly mobilizing 6,600 laborers, and 15 excavators to clear hundreds of kilometers of critical canals. The rapid response saved Daman District’s crops and the livelihoods of many of its local citizens.
With a largely rural population of 90,000 people, most of Daman’s men work in the agriculture sector. According to local farmers, the canal left unrepaired would result in a lack of irrigation forcing them to grow poppy to support their families. In response, the Kandahar PRT organized a shura with the Daman District leader and district elders, led by Kandahar Provincial Governor Tooryalai Wesa, in order to develop an emergency plan.
The emergency program repaired 320 kilometers of critical irrigation canals in just 16 days. When insurgents attempted to interfere with the project, local elders successfully resisted them. The repairs successfully spared any damage to Daman District’s crops.
In addition to saving the district’s farms, the activity provided short-term employment opportunities, while making cash available to purchase necessary agricultural supplies such as seeds and farming equipment. The project reinvigorated the local economy to ensure a plentiful harvest this growing season, and paved the way for future rehabilitation work to ensure the sustainability of the district’s irrigation network.
USAID’s FIRUP program promotes stability through temporary employment and income generation opportunities in targeted populations to reduce the number of food-insecure and/or unemployed Afghans joining the insurgency.

1959 Cockshutt 560 Diesel

From Wikipedia: Cockshutt was a large tractor and machinery manufacturer based in Brantford, Ontario. Originally founded as the Brantford Plow Works by James G. Cockshutt in 1877, the name was changed to the Cockshutt Plow Company when it was incorporated in 1882. After James died his brother William Foster Cockshutt took over as president. He remained until 1888, when another brother Frank Cockshutt became president of the company. In 1910, Henry Cockshutt took over the leadership of the company. Under his direction, the company was able to obtain financing for acquisitions and expansion. Known for quality designs, the company became the leader in the tillage tools sector by the 1920s.

Since Cockshutt did not have a tractor design of its own in 1929 an arrangement was made to distribute Allis-Chalmers model 20-35 and United tractors. In 1935 Cockshutt took on the Oliver tractor line. During the war years, Cockshutt was able to design its own tractor. It was the Cockshutt 30 tractor and was the first modern production tractor built in Canada. After the model 30, Cockshutt added the smaller model 20, and the larger 40 and 50.

In 1958, Cockshutt introduced a complete new line of tractors at the same time: the 540, 550, 560, and 570. The sheet metal of the 500 series was designed by Raymond Loewy, an automobile designer of the era. The design set a new standard in modern styling.

Also in 1958, the company was taken over by outside interests and the farm equipment division was sold to White Motor Company in 1962. White had previously acquired Oliver in 1960 and subsequently bought Minneapolis-Moline in 1963.

Starting in 1962, White opted to rebrand the Oliver tractors as Cockshutts. Thus, a Cockshutt 1650 was the same tractor as the Oliver 1650, but painted red instead of green.
