What Tractors Mean for Farming

Did you know that more than 80 percent of your diet likely comes from the seeds of about twelve plant species? These plants themselves are often found in the Earth’s landscape naturally, and many times, they are planted and harvested on farms.

Farming itself began more than 10,000 years ago, and it basically stayed the same until the 1700s. It was during this time that there began to be a great increase in agriculture production. During the 1850s, farmers decided to implement new farming techniques—crop rotation, use of manure, better soil preparation—all of which helped to produce higher amounts and higher quality of crops.

Once tractors were invented, farming was propelled to a whole new level. It didn’t take long for tractors to start coming in different sizes, types, and colors. In fact, farmers were able to choose tractor, truck, and implement enamel in almost any color they chose.

Majic Paint, a leader in the painting industry, understands what tractors mean for farming. These pieces of heavy machinery are able to perform a wide range of tasks, including plowing, cutting down crops, moving crops, digging holes, and much more.

With the right tractors and attachments, farmers can greatly reduce the amount of time that they have to spend performing any one task. As a result, farmers are able to boost their overall productivity levels.

Although some farmers find it incredibly expensive to invest in tractors and other types of heavy machinery, the associated expenses tend to pay off within just one to three years, especially for farmers who have massive farms of 100 acres or more.

Without the invention of tractors, farming would be a slow process—slower than it already is—meaning crop production would be minimal. Instead of acquiring crops from grocery stores and local farmers, almost everyone would have to farm their own plants and vegetables because production would be so low.

If you have a tractor, or you’re thinking about purchasing one, make sure to purchase one that can meet all of your farming needs. And don’t forget that you can use Majic Paint to meet all of your tractor, truck, and implement enamel needs, allowing you to have heavy machinery that always looks its best for the long haul.
