Best Tractors

Best Tractors

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.
Mechanization can be a powerful stimulus to growth when it makes a new method or crop profitable (case 3). The best example is pump irrigation. Although it is always possible to lift water with animal or human power, it may often not be profitable to do so, even at extremely low wages. The pump therefore enables output to rise but the size of the increase is determined by the elasticity of final demand. Since the extra production requires extra labor, agricultural employment expands more or less in step with output.
