First, they reduce the profitability of all forms of agricultural investment, including land improvements, irrigation, animals, and buildings. Second, they may cause farmers to allocate whatever investment funds are available away from mechanical inputs. This trend will be stronger the more expensive and long-lived the mechanical inputs are and the easier it is to produce other forms of capital (such as land improvements) by hand.

Different crops vary widely, however, in the type of labor required-that is, in their power- and control-intensity. Harvesting of root crops is probably the most power-intensive, although it still requires significan control. At the other extreme, cotton, fruit, and vegetables require intensive control: in the case of apples, the threat of damage is so large that their harvesting has still not been successfully mechanized.

Weed control is vital to agriculture, because weeds decrease yields, increase production costs, interfere with harvest, and lower product quality. Weeds also impede irrigation water-flow, interfere with pesticide application, and harbour disease organisms.

An example was the mass-produced and low-cost Fordson tractor introduced by Henry Ford in 1916. Soon after the Irish inventor and agricultural engineer, Harry Ferguson, recognized the utility of a greater integration of the tractor with the implements and machines (plows, seeders, agrochemical applicators, harvesters, feeders), which were pulled behind it by a simple drawbar hitch.
