The development of agricultural techniques and machinery has been central to the development of mankind, driving society and civilisation forward from hunter-gathering to the global world we live in today. This volume explores twentieth-century farming equipment, offering detailed descriptions and explanations coupled with photographs and illustrations. Highly recommenced for those with an interest in the development of modern agriculture.
