The I.D.C.-Bornu Groundnut Lifter was originally developed in a joint USAID/Ministry of Agriculture project at Maiduguri for the savanna area of northern Nigeria, This tool was later introduced by the l.D.C.-Zaria for manufacture by local blacksmiths, and it was more recently adapted for local manufacture at the I.T.D.G. Project at Magoye, Zambia. The lifters have no sifting tines but were designed spe cifically for groundnut raising (peanuts and legumes).
