Steam engines were widely used for only about fifty years between 1870 and 1920. After 1900 they were rapidly displaced by internal combustion engines and electric motors. Tractors came into widespread use in North America after about 1920, but coexisted with horses for roughly twenty-five to thirty years. Except for Great Britain, where tractors began to be adopted in the 1930s, the tractorization of European and Japanese agriculture was delayed until about 1955, after which it happened very quickly.

The rest of this section provides support for the following: Generalization 8. When new power sources become available, they are initially used only for selected operations for which their comparative advantage is greatest.

Provision of a guaranteed profitable income to primary producers is a powerful but expensive food policy instrument. The poorest countries that typically have the highest population growth and the greatest need to produce more food are least well placed to afford such a policy. As such, the international community and its agencies could make a huge contribution to food security by investing heavily in a program of guaranteed profitable income for farmers based on food production. Such a policy presupposes individual ownership of the land or a tenancy beneficially linked to productivity increase.
Clearly additional investment in research and development is required to render the autonomous power supply options as economic and user-friendly as possible. Also, it should be noted that the purchased electricity supply, although not autonomous, could still be (at least in part) generated from renewable power sources. From a national perspective, renewable alternatives to diesel fuel for mobile equipment (e.g. oilseed fuels) (see also, Energy Sources: Renewable and Non Renewable) may also be considered as autonomous power.The substantial range of tillage and seeding equipment is outlined in Tillage and Seeding Machines, EOLSS on-line, 2002) and summarized in Tables 5 and 6. Broadcast seeding and seed drilling are classical methods that are popular for sowing cereals (wheat, barley and oats) into cultivated soil.

These characteristics of rental markets are confirmed by some data for tractor rentals in South Asia and machinery rentals in the Philippines. The Philippine data show that most farmers own their animals, carts, plows, and harrows. Harvesting and threshing equipment, tractors, and motor vehicles, however, are used on about five to seven times more farms than own them, which indicates that rental markets are extremely well developed. Generalization 7. Where rental markets are fairly easy to establish, farm size has much less influence on the size of machines. Subsidies. Subsidies may speed up mechanization.
