Abstract

The objective of this survey was to introduce a new rice threshing technology to the rice farmers in Mwea
that is efficient and affordable. From the results obtained most farmers felt that the Senbakoki was less
tedious and less time consuming. However, the results showed that the adoption rate of the Senbakoki by
the farmers was low due to the constraints faced while using the Senbakoki such as sticking of the straw
on the combs.
