In all these changes, the elastic demand provided by export markets played a crucial role. Without such export possibilities, areas planted, employment, and agricultural output would have expanded less and mechanization would probably have happened more slowly. (If final demand is very inelastic, mechanization could lead to a reduction in agricultural employment even if extra land is available.) Mechanization can also be induced by labor scarcity arising out of nonagricultural demand for labor (case 2). Production costs rise because wages rise rapidly.

The most dramatic aspect of mechanization is the shift from one source of power to another. In ancient China cattle began to replace human labor more than 3,200 years ago. Between the second and fourth century A.D. fairly widespread use of water power is reported from China for rice pounding, grinding, and water lifting (Liu 1962).

Mechanical processing of soil so that it is in the proper physical condition for planting is usually referred to as tilling; adding nutrients and trace elements is called fertilizing. Both processes are important in agricultural operations.

Leasing of expensive equipment is also an option but generally is less popular except with larger producers. In the developing countries, the trend towards adoption of the tractor as the fundamental unit of agricultural mechanization systems is sure to continue. However, for many small farmers in deprived regions the transition to tractor-based mechanization is not a realistic option due to the lack of finance and basic infrastructure. In this situation, a continued reliance on human energy and animal-powered equipment for tillage, planting and harvesting will prevail for the foreseeable future.
