Farmer Chala Chaka harvesting teff, the typically Ethiopian grain, near Bato Chrecha in Southern Ethiopia. (Also got Bacho Vioreda as a location.)
He is using a sickle to harvest the grain by hand, cutting the stalks and then piling it behind him in bundles, which will then be gathered into piles in the fields so that the grain can dry properly.
The sickle is called a machd. He thinks he will harvest abotu 500 Kg from is half hectare field.
His wife is bringing him the typical local beer made from grain.
