Best Tractors

The size and number of tractors is dictated by the size, nature and profitability of the farming enterprise as well as by how many (if any) operations (e.g. plowing, planting, spraying, harvesting) will be serviced by local contractors. For example, the capital cost of purchasing a harvester to harvest a small area of a moderate value crop is often prohibitive.
As such, sowing and fertilizing may be combined in one field operation, as is common in cereal production where semi-continuous bands of seeds and fertilizers are planted close together at shallow depths in closely spaced rows (typically 175 mm apart). Of course, the fertilizer may also be applied separately (from the seed) in a corn drill style applicator.
