That’s an entirely different set of problems right there. I have no idea on what the education system is like there and no idea what the education level of most children/people is like. Really hope you’re not basing your information off of Borat.

Tractors are great if you can afford them and have access to fuel. The trains would be a big help with bringing in fuel though. And the trains provide the means to transport crops and expand commerce. And of course to transport the tractors.

Er, no. Child labor is used extensively to pick cotton in the Ferghana Valley. During harvest the schools buss all the kids to the fields where they live for several weeks picking cotton. They also kidnap people off of the streets and send them to the fields.
