Description: Sound (English), b&w, 18 min. On the plains of central Turkey, farming is hard, especially when only age-old methods are used. The surrounding hills have long since been cut bare and offer little protection from sun and wind. Young Yusef and his father work their land with oxen and wooden plough, exactly as their forefathers have done for hundreds of years—that is, until Yusef attends Agricultural School. Yusef convinces his father of the importance of using a metal plough and following the new methods he has learned, such as letting some of the fields lie fallow and not making them yield a crop every year. The youth of Turkey, eager and swift to learn, are introducing their villages to new methods and new equipment being made available by the government under the European Recovery Program. Produced by Clarke & Hornby Film Productions Ltd, London, for ECA Turkey. NB: See also TURKISH HARVEST.
