The Advantages of New Agriculture Implements

Shruti Sharma

Agriculture machinery is a broad phrase with many different meanings. It is not only about the use of machinery, whether small or large, mobile or immobile, powered or not, used for tillage operations, harvesting, or thrashing, but also irrigation, haulage, production, processing machinery, different dairy equipment for butter making, cream separating, rice hulling, oil pressing, cotton ginning, and other agricultural purposes.

Using machine power to work on a farm, which was formerly done by horses, bullocks, and other animals, as well as human labour, is an example of mechanization in agriculture and farming. Mechanization can be implemented partially, with animals and human labour doing parts of the task and machines doing the rest, or totally, with machines replacing animals and human labour.

The following are the primary advantages of farm mechanization:

  • Farming activities are more efficient and faster when they are mechanized. A farmer who could formerly plough one acre of ground with two horses in a day can now plough 12 acres with a tractor in the same amount of time.

  • The use of agricultural technology in farming methods reduces the need for human labour.

  • Chemical use, improved seed types and seed wealth, and enhanced agricultural machinery all contribute to increased output. With the assistance of mechanization, production has also increased labour productivity significantly.

  • Mechanization improves farmers' overall standing in rural regions while also saving them time and effort.

  • The use of diverse agricultural implements such as rotavators, cultivators, power tillers, combine harvesters, and so on considerably decreases reliance on labour while enhancing farmers' quality of life.

  • Any piece of land that has not been utilized for farming may be readily and conveniently converted into a profitable farm with the use of farm equipment, resulting in proper land usage.

  • When it comes to growing food for the world's growing population, only automation can assist farm owners in growing crops and grains to fulfil the food demands of a huge population.

  • Mechanization is also required to enhance the situation of farmers in a nation like India, where many people still rely on traditional agricultural practices. The use of mechanization has the potential to spark a new agricultural revolution in India.

  • Modern agricultural equipment, such as a combine harvester, assists farmers in producing cleaner, higher-quality grain in less time, which can then be sold swiftly on the market.

Farm mechanization not only improves the farmer's economic situation and way of life but also increases production and efficiency.
