The Students from Nagaoka College and Japanese Company Tohmatsu together with the Ecodudu team joined hands in March, 2019 to solve the production system problem.
The activities begun with a tour in JKUAT where the team from Ecodudu company and the students had a feel of the various technology and innovation in the campus in the field of Agriculture and Engineering.
The team embarked on a tour to Ecodudu Company to acquaint themselves with the production system of the company and tested the machine prototype made based on the previous discussion of the problems facing the production systems.
