Farmers in Egypt have such small plots, for the most part, that aside from renting a tractor to plow every once in a while, all of the work is done by hand. After the plowing, the seeding, weeding, and harvest is all hand work. The extraordinary thing is that most of our fruits and vegetables are locally grown, so these guys are very, very effective. Some plots of land will support three or more crops a year.
