Farm Machinery has long been the standard book on current theory and practice for both students and farmers. This fully revised 5th edition incorporates new text and photographs which reflect the many changes and developments that have taken place over the last decade. This new text has been added to complement earlier material concerning the working principles, operation and maintenance of vast array of the somewhat less sophisticated farm tractors and farm machines in use on British farms in the twenty-first century. There are chapters on tractors, cultivation and drilling machinery, crop treatment and harvest machinery. Further sections deal with farmyard and estate maintenance machinery, mechanical handlers, dairy equipment, irrigation, farm power and the farm workshop.
