Best Tractors

Best Tractors

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.
Alternatively, it may be applied on the surface of the ground or crop (e.g. grass) using a tractor mounted centrifugal spinner or oscillating spout type applicator where the fertilizer is broadcast rather than placed in rows. Aerial application of fertilizers may also be used in locations inaccessible to tractors, as described in Fertilizer Applicators and Plant Protection Equipment (EOLSS on-line, 2002). Both pressurized (typically using ammonia) and nonpressurized liquid fertilizer applicators are also described. Protection of plants from diseases and pests is normally achieved by atomizing a liquid formulation containing the active pesticide ingredient through a small nozzle under pressure and spraying onto, beside or beneath the crop canopy, or by using granular pesticide applicators.
