Top 5 Modern Harvesting Machines

Modern farming technology is used to improve a wide range of production practices employed by our farmers. It makes use of hybrid seeds of a selected variety of a single crop, technologically advanced equipment, and lots of energy subsidies in the form of irrigation water, fertilizers, and pesticides.

Modern farming technology is being used to improve a variety of production strategies used by our farmers. It employs hybrid seeds of a single crop variety, cutting-edge technology, and a plethora of energy subsidies in the form of irrigation water, fertilizers, and pesticides. Tractors, balers, combines, ploughs, mowers, planters, and sprayers are the most frequent forms of farm equipment and machinery.

Farming is no longer a small-scale production, but rather one that is done with huge machines over thousands of hectares. This efficiency boost means that the world has access to any food it wants at any time.  

Let's take a look at 5 modern machines that dramatically increased the efficiency and production of farming operations across the globe. 

Best Harvesting Machines

Small-scale Potato Harvester

This machine digs potato from the soil by separating soil from the roots. It functions on small scale but separates the soil quickly to reduce the problems in harvesting potatoes.  Even though the picture depicts a small-scale machine, the same technology is used in tractor-towed rigs to harvest potatoes at an even greater scale. 

Automatic In row weeder 

Weeding is an important agricultural practice. Weed growth has the potential to disrupt crop growth, resulting in nutritional deficiency. This machine rips out weeds fast and effectively without causing harm to the original crops. Allowing your fields to become overgrown allows weeds and exotic species to choke off your cash crop, leaving the farmer with pennies. Pesticides and weedicides are widely used, yet many people are concerned about the potentially dangerous compounds contained within.

Automatic cow milking machine 

Cow in our Indian society is used for milk and many other products are made out of it. This way it is important but if there is an easy way out to milk cows through machines; it can enhance the productivity in agriculture ultimately by increasing the milk production of the country. 

Carrot harvester and separator 

This machine is no different from the potato harvester but provides ease in harvesting carrots from the ground along with roots that are dug deep inside. The machine is a boon in harvesting as it can emulsify the rate at which harvesting of carrot can be done. 

Robotic lettuce harvester 

HOOVER XL is a powerful machine to aspirate the residues of crops and leaves on the ground, designed for fourth-range producers. With 4 steering wheels, the aspirator is fitted with a side-shifting cutting bar thus reducing the problems in harvesting lettuce.  

These machines inevitably enhance the production in some or another way thus reducing the manpower and automatically enhancing the economy of the countries. No matter how advanced they are but they can be the future of Indian agriculture in their own innovative ways
