Workers on the Aslan Group Global farm in Mozambique gather soybean stems


Workers on the Aslan Group Global farm in Mozambique gather soybean stems for threshing through mechanized mini-threshers. The workers don’t have to pull the stems which are cut off by termites, which don’t eat beans. In the future Wallie Hardie plans to use insecticides to suppress the termites, so the beans can be combined. Photo taken spring 2013. (Forum News Service/Submitted photo by Wallie Hardie.)
