It's cold! - The Equipment says "No"

Tillage is the manipulation of the soil into a desired condition by mechanical means; tools are employed to achieve some desired effect (such as pulverization, cutting, or movement). Soil is tilled to change its structure, to kill weeds, and to manage crop residues.
Even when oilseeds (esterified, partially refined or crude) are used as diesel fuel extenders, the economic difficulty still persists and will continue until such time as diesel oil supplies begin to dwindle or until a more appropriate substitute fuel (renewable or nonrenewable) should emerge. Should diesel fuel supplies run out and an appropriate substitute fuel fail to emerge, tractors and other engine-driven equipment could convert to spark-ignition engines. These are more versatile in terms of fuel use (e.g. renewable alcohol, as well as nonrenewable hydrocarbons) even if less suited to the heavy workloads in agriculture.

Thus mechanical milling is even more widespread than mechanical threshing. But where the green revolution raised wages and increased harvests (as in Indian Punjab, Philippines, and central Thailand), the small threshers were rapidly adopted once efficient designs were available. 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.

** Turning grain, moving grain and trying to get ready to start cleaning seed and it's bitterly cold outside ????. When it's winter the simplest of jobs can take 3x longer than normal because of the cold. Needles to say, we were unable to complete the cleaning due to the next morning we just couldn't get the equipment running. So we ll pick it up again later this winter when it warms up. ** For alot more material such as: Pictures, Lens, Polls, and random fun with both Mike, Ashtyn and now Chapel, then check out our Patreon Account! ???? Otherwise, have a great day! ???? ** Oh, right! I am back! They are nearing completion of the new merchandise and we hope to have it out soon! We'll then just have to model it and post it on our website, sorry for the delay but everything seems to be delayed these days! ????????‍♂️.

Again, technological ineptitude in Japan cannot have been the cause for such long delays. Practical development of horse-drawn harvesting combines started in the 1860s in California, where labor was extremely scarce.As long as agricultural wages were relatively low, large farmers found it more efficient to maintain a tractor and truck along with some horses. Horses did virtually all the jobs for which power was not the overriding input. Each power source specialized in the tasks for which it had the greatest comparative advantage.
