In conclusion, agricultural implementsare essential to modern farming since they help to increase production and efficiency when doing various tasks including planting, cultivating, and harvesting crops. Plows, harrows, seeders, cultivators, sprayers, balers, and tillers are just six examples of the several farm equipment available to farmers to help them with their work. There are many other tools that they can use as well. Farmers may increase their yields and hence contribute to the world's food supply by using the right instruments for each operation.
