This text constitutes a complete manual for the farmer, concentrating on the topic of the mechanisation of the farming process. It covers a wide field in a practical manner, and explains in simple language the intricacies and functions of the many types of agricultural machinery, including the internal combustion engine. Although old, much of the information contained herein will still be of much value to the farmer, making this text a worthy addition to collections of farming literature. The chapters of this book include: 'Why Mechanise a Farm?', 'The Internal Combustion Engine', 'The Transmission System', 'The Right Tractor for the Job', 'Horticultural Cultivations', 'Spraying', 'The Tractor at Work - Ploughing', 'The Tractor at Work - Row-Crop Cultivation', 'The Tractor at Work - Implement Operation', 'The Power Lift and its Implements', etcetera. We are proud to republish this vintage text, complete with a new introduction on farming.
