Best Tractors

Agricultural mechanization has involved the partial or full replacement of human energy and animal-powered equipment (e.g. plows, seeders and harvesters) by engine-driven equipment. Most of this is tractor driven and to a lesser extent self-propelled equipment (including harvesters, sprayers, fertilizer applicators, planters and seeders). Agricultural mechanization has been pioneered in North America and Europe and more recently in Japan, and is now spreading rapidly throughout the world. Notwithstanding such progress, a significant element of human and animal powered mechanization remains, particularly in the poorer regions of the world.
This generalization corresponds to the substitution view of agricultural mechanization (Binswanger 1978). It differs from the net contributor view, which assumes that more machinery-in particular, tractors produces higher yields or other gains in output, regardless of the economic environment in which it is introduced. Such a view usually confuses the direct effects of mechanization with the indirect productivity effects of factor savings.
