SULAIMANI (ESTA) — Kurdish villagers use scythes to mow grasses to make food for their livestock in the Kurdistan Region, despite new inventions for farming, harvesting and mowing.

The villagers say use of the tool, called Karantu in Hawrami, requires experience so as to cut the grasses.

“This tool needs to be sharpened after it is used for an hour or two,” villager Hawraman Mohammed tell Esta Media Network.

“You cannot cut the grass if you aren’t experienced,” villager Karam Ahmed says, who has worked in the field for 45 years.
