Mechanical threshing based on human power, but especially on horses, became widespread in the United States and Britain as early as 1830. By 1850 virtually all grain in the United States was threshed by large mechanical threshers, which went from farm to farm during the winter months. Rental markets were extensive.
The new threshers are now also penetrating into other South Asian regions (Walker and Kshirsagar 1981). As with earlier American and European experience, mills and threshers are usually rented.
The Fendt 1050 Vario never fails to impress and it doesn't this time during the serious shifting of some soil. This field has been deep ploughed first and is now levelled for growing a crop of organic vegetables next spring. The job is in the capable hands of Dutch contractor Van Werven Oldebroek, who specialise in soil improvement.
The 500 HP Fendt is pulling a 6 metre wide leveller from the Dutch manufacturer Bos Bolsward. In order to ensure maximum precision up to 2 centimetres the outfit is using Topcon RTK-GPS, rather than a laser set-up. Beforehand the height of the field has been mapped using a quad bike. This data is transferred into a field plan to calculate the minimum required travelling time and diesel consumption. This map is loaded into the Topcon X35 terminal all the driver has to do is circle round and round.
Sadly it was very windy so sorry for the wind noise, despite using a dedicated microphone with deadcat.

However, the difficulties in matching environmental concerns and sustainability with an ever-increasing world population cannot be underestimated especially in the developing countries. Thus, there may be a tension between maximizing food production on the one hand and implementing sustainable development and environmental protection systems (e.g. erosion control) especially, in poorer regions, where the demand for increased food production follows logically from an increasing population.
Other things being equal, farming output will therefore fall (or grow more slowly), depending on the elasticity of final demand. Farmers mechanize, although they can seldom prevent some increase in their production cost. The best example of these trends comes from the United States after 1940. The use of tractors, combines, and other machines expanded at unprecedented rates. Although labor input per acre or per animal had declined a little between 1915 and 1939, it fell sharply after 1940.
