Farm power—consisting of manual labour, agricultural tools, draught animals, tractors, implements, equipment, and machinery—is an essential farm input. Farm mechanisation helps in effective utilisation of inputs to increase the productivity of land and labour. Besides it helps in reducing the drudgery in farm operations.
The pace of farm mechanisation in the country accelerated with the manufacture of agricultural equipment by the local industries. With the modest beginning of manufacture of tractors, today the Indian farm machinery industries meet the bulk of the requirement of mechanisation inputs and also export.
