      This report shows that trends in farm mechanization are attributable to differing approaches to reform and differing agricultural resource endowments. The level of reform determines the pattern and extent to which labor and capital change, with land reform and commodity market liberalization as the underlying forces for change.   Mechanization is a crucial input for agricultural crop production and one that historically has been neglected in the context of developing countries. Factors that reduce the availability of farm power compromise the ability to cultivate sufficient land and have long been recognized as a source of poverty, especially in sub-Saharan Africa. Increasing the power supply to agriculture means that.

      Farming mechanization is generally regarded as one of the critical input variables for increasing agricultural productivity and total food production. Most rural communities in the world earn most of their living from agriculture, yet a very low percentage of their land is productively cultivated. However, significant mechanization growth, including the adoption of tractors, has occurred since the s, against a backdrop of rising rural wages, particularly for plowing, combined with growing emigration and growth in key staple crop yields and overall broad agricultural production growth, as well as improved market access and participation.

      These developments are recounted in this book, with detailed attention to the ways in which plants, animals, soil, climate, and society have interacted. Mazoyer and Roudart’s A History of World Agriculture is a path-breaking and panoramic work, mechanization, motorization and specialization have brought to a halt the pattern of cultural. Agricultural output grew faster than the population over the century to and thereafter productivity remained among the highest in the world. Significance of the Agricultural Revolution The Agricultural Revolution in Britain proved to be a major turning point, allowing population to far exceed earlier peaks and sustain the country’s rise.
