Modern Agricultural Equipment to Make Agriculture More Interesting…
In 2022, a farmer situated in the small town of India received a notice from PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals). It was a show cause notice for the improper and inhuman treatment given to his bulls. He was shocked and confused and was looking for a lawyer, first time in his life. Well, his father, grandfather, great grandfather used bullocks for farming and carrying the load. He treated them well, fed well; they were looking happy until the notice arrived. If the charges against him proved, he had to give up on his bullocks. Not just him, but maybe many of those who’ve been using animals for the same. Well, don’t worry it is a hyperbole created to let you know about things can happen in the near future. We need to be ready and we need to treat our animals gently. But we also have to look for better solutions for agriculture.
For decades, we’ve been using traditional methods to perform agricultural activities. Majority of the population is indulged in farming and a tremendous amount of energy is spent doing all agricultural processes. However, the output isn’t great in numbers and it is necessary now to use advanced methods for agriculture. Soil testing, weather forecasting, irrigation system, data science will be the future of this industry. In addition to this, modern agriculture equipment will effectively lead to good crop yield and greater profits. There are different implements designed to fulfil different requirements and some of them explained here.
If you want to remove the weeds out of your cultivation and are wondering how to do it, you have to go for a cultivator. Cultivator works in two ways, it aerates the soil in set patterns before a seed is placed on the soil, and it removes the weed after the crop has grown.
Rotary tiller also called as the rotavator, rotary hoe or rotary plough is used to work the soil through the rotating blades.
Seed drills are equipment that is used for placing seeds on the ground with minimal disturbance of the soil. They are often used for crops like grains, grasses or forage.
An agricultural machine used for transplanting seedlings to the field. A rice transplanter is a specialized transplanter fitted to transplant rice seedlings onto paddy field.
a sprayer is a piece of equipment that is used to apply herbicides, pesticides, and fertilizers on agricultural crops
The modern combine harvester is a versatile machine to harvest a variety of crops. They perform all the operations of harvesting such as reaping, threshing and winnowing into a single operation.
Threshing is a key part of agriculture that involves removing the seeds or grain from plants from the plant stalk.
a piece of farm machinery used to compress a cut and raked crop into compact bales that are easy to handle, transport, and store.
Faster adoption of new machinery will help to feed the increasing population. With agricultural land getting occupied by new construction projects it is crucial that the remaining portion should produce food in good quantity. The import of food material should start and we must capitalize on exporting the produced goods. For the growth of our economy agriculture needs to prosper. And it’ll prosper only when we’ll use advanced solutions.
