As he said, Togo wants to end up with the traditional circle where people go to the farm with the hoe. "We must go to mechanization and for this we need mechanical engineer who will try to find the replacement of the hoe so that we can make up to 1500m² daily instead of 10m²", says engineer Daupoh.
He goes on with the role of the engineer in an agriculture where there are still seasons without some foods such as tomatoes. "The water engineer must be able to know how to capture whether surface water or groundwater to make it available so that the agronomist can use it for his irrigation", he explains.
In this context of climate change, Mr. Daupoh thinks that the electrical engineer for his part, can offer to the agronomist or the farmer, solar components to extract the water and convey it to the desired location.
"You have produced the corn and to dissect all this in a period of time, it is also mechanization because instead of 100 people to do 10 bags a day, is better to have a small machine that can do 100 bags in two hours", he adds.
Act 2 for the JNI
Test shot, mastershot. Determined to play their part in the success of the government's National Development Plan (PND), the engineers of Togo, after the first successful edition, announce the act 2 of the National Day of the Engineer (JNI).
This year, it will be held from December 6 to 7 with the main theme "The engineer facing the current challenge of developing Togo". 500 engineers from Togo and the diaspora, WAEMU, ECOWAS and Tunisian engineering orders and associations are expected at this edition.
Togolese companies, banks and insurance companies, universities and training institutions, students, media are also expected.
"We miss neither the resources nor the skills. What we need is to gather them so that they can coordinate their actions to really go towards this development. So our advocacy is the organization and the setting up of a synergy", justifies Marius Bagny, Vice-President of ONIT.
Tsipoaka Kossiwa, 2nd vice-president of the National Board of Directors of ONIT reminded that the engineer is today very involved at each stage of the value chain.
"It is also the responsibility of the engineer to build the infrastructure that can enable this commercialization whether in terms of transport I mean transportation infrastructure, or whether by remote waves, for example computer to support different electronic exchange that can be put in place", says Kossiwa.
The public is therefore massively expected to better discover through exhibitions and panels, Togolese engineers in the exercise of their function.
