The first beautiful farm implement I will address is the tractor. They were developed around the mid 1800s and were referred to as plowing engines.
How were these first tractors powered?
burning wood chips
oxen or work horses
After the ground is ploughed, there are huge lumps of ground that need to be broken up to provide finer soil. Most farmers today do this with a beautiful mechanical device commonly known as what?(different name types include the spike, chain, and disc)
This beautiful farm implement is very important in making good ground into an even better quality soil. What tractor-drawn implement do modern farmers use for a work farmers of the past literally had to do by hand? (Heavy work of this kind is still sometimes performed by hand today)
This extremely important implement is the only farm machine that the different manufacturers of the machine will NOT stand behind. Which beautiful farm implement (also affectionately referred to as the "honey wagon") am I talking about?
For farmers of hay and other small grain crops, this next beautiful implement cuts the crop and forms them into what is sometimes referred to as 'windrows'.
What's the name of the implement that performs this task?
Earlier in the quiz, I talked of an implement which was used to break up big clumps of ploughed dirt and soil. This implement can only go to a limited depth, making it necessary to use another machine to dig to deeper depths. It was invented through necessity once farmers realized the large clumps interfered with the planted crops' and seeds' ability to grow properly.
So what beautiful farm implement is for digging to greater depths and breaking up these large clumps of earth?
farm labourers with big shovels
This next machine truly is a beautiful implement, as without it, fifty to seventy-five percent of the planted seeds would fail for several reasons.
What item helps get seeds to an even depth, giving each one a good chance to germinate?
the farmer's wife's soup ladles
New seeds and crops need to be watched carefully and nurtured into germinating and growing. So the farmer hooks this device onto his tractor on a regular basis to help him/her in achieving successful crops. What simple, yet vital (and often not environmentally friendly), implement aids the farmer in this area of agriculture?
500 labourers with fly swatters
Of course, no farming operation could hope for success unless the farmer can get water to his crops. Large operations have huge water delivery systems to accomplish this feat. What is the word most used by farmers that refers to the delivery of precious water to thirsty seeds and crops?
Sometimes, the condition of the land necessitates the use of this beautiful implement. Poor soil conditions caused by low rainfall, frost, drought, and other natural and man-made issues sometimes makes it impossible to plant seeds. This machine is used to get crops into the ground using pre-germinated and pre-grown plants.
Which "beautiful, beautiful farming implement" would this be?
the farmer's wife
