Using state-of-the-art technology, a well-maintained combine harvester operated effectively in a mature crop, can attain clean grain recoveries of 99 % – a remarkable achievement! Work rates in excess of one hectare (10 000 m 2 ) per hour are readily achievable with two operators, one to drive the combine, the other to drive a tractor-trailer or a truck into which the combine periodically empties its grain for transportation to the farm granary or direct to the local grain merchant or storage facility.

Mechanization is the main facilitator of the trend toward bigger farms. This goes along with another lesson from historical data and contemporary experience: Generalization 6. Large farms adopt new forms of machinery considerably faster than small farms. Because larger farms offer more collateral, they make it easier to borrow to invest in new machinery.

Likewise, the use of preventive maintenance protocols are desirable in the off-season e.g. replacing parts (such as bearings or soil engaging elements) that may break or wear out before they need repair or replacement. The use of highly skilled and competent operators is also desirable to ensure optimal performance of equipment that is generally getting bigger, working faster and becoming more complex despite the welcome introduction of more automated control and ergonomic systems designed to assist and enhance performance.
