The Best Agricultural Machinery in Nigeria 2020 Reviews
Farming is perhaps one of the world's oldest and most essential trades, and up until now, it has continued on with the same tools. Modern engineering along with tractors and new machinery has shifted the agriculture industry to one of efficiency and mass production. Farming is no longer a small scale production, but reasonably one that takes place with massive machines over thousands of hectares. This efficiency improvement means that the world has access to any food it wants at any time. Let's take a look at 6 modern machines that dramatically increased the efficiency and production of agricultural operations across the globe.
Agricultural machinery is machinery used in farming or other agriculture. There are many types of such equipment, from hand tools and power tools to tractors and the countless kinds of farm implements that they tow or operate. Diverse arrays of equipment are used in both organic and non-organic farming.
Agricultural machinery is also used to improve the 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.
Uses And Importance of Agricultural Machinery
Accomplishing the right farming operations using the right agricultural machinery not only saves the time for a farmer but also helps to increase the fertility and efficiency of a farm.
Advantage of using the farm equipment is that they are capable of doing the maximum in minimum time, with reducing the cost of farming operations. Even at minimum speed, these farm machines have the capability to work twice as fast as human workers.
Additionally, these machines are also being upgraded and redesigned with the upcoming technologies to make them more eco-friendly. These upgrades make sure economic and environmental savings make them compatible to further use in the future.

Farm Tractor RSM 2400 Rostselmash
This Farm Tractor RSM 2400 Rostselmash is one of the most important and easily recognizable technological components of modern agriculture and is basically a machine that provides machine power for performing agricultural tasks. It can be used to pull a variety of farm implements for plowing, planting, cultivating, fertilizing, and harvesting crops, and can also be used for hauling materials and personal transportation. In the provision of motive power, tractors were a replacement for human effort and that of draft animals, both of which are still used extensively in other parts of the world. Farm Tractor RSM 2400 Rostselmash is powered by Cummins engines, which have proven to be very robust, rugged and durable.
Our Farm Tractor RSM 2400 Rostselmash can optionally be fitted with a GPS/GLONASS automatic guidance system. The autopilot will improve tractor’s productivity by 10 % by minimising gaps and overlaps during tillage operations and eliminate the risk of overly dense sowing when using seeding systems. The tractor is compatible with both an electric autosteer and a more precise steering system via a hydraulic valve. The closed center load sensing hydraulic system provides the required pressure for efficient operation of implements. When not loaded, the system operates in low pressure power-saving. The engine is equipped with a variable geometry turbocharger providing a 56 % increase in torque (up to 2,034 Nm), and thereby a faster response to load increase at low rpm. High engine efficiency provides superior fuel consumption performance (from 197 g/kWh).

Cultivator Cenio 3000 Special Mounted Amazone
The Cultivator Cenio 3000 Special Mounted Amazone is available in working widths of 3 m, 3.5 m and 4 m in rigid execution and as a special variant with shear bolt overload safety protection and as a super variant with compression spring overload safety protection. The cenio can be used with tractor horsepower from 105 and 190 HP. Despite its extremely robustly constructed frame, the cenio requires significantly lower lifting power requirement in comparison with other cultivators. This makes it ideal for soil tillage with small to medium tractors.
The cenio can be used in a range of working depths from 5 to 25 cm for shallow stubble cultivation, as well as for medium-deep incorporation or deep-loosening soil tillage. Thanks to a wide range of equipment options, the mulch cultivator can be adapted to a wide range of operational conditions.
The cenio offers a high degree of flexibility, even when attaching the cultivator to the tractor. This suits end users that have two different categories of coupling points for both the top link and the lower links. As a result, the ideal angle of pull and sufficiently large lift height can always be achieved even with smaller tractors. In addition, the category 3 lower link pins can be swivelled either inwards or outwards in order to switch quickly between the standard dimensions of category 3 or 3N.
The working depth of the time element is adjusted mechanically on the machine or, alternatively, hydraulically from the tractor cab, whereby a clearly readable scale provides the driver with good orientation. With this option, it is possible to react very quickly and conveniently to different situations during work. For example, tramlines or headlands can be worked more deeply without having to leave the tractor.

Two things that keep the equipment in just the right situation are handling the machinery correctly and following the manufacturers’ recommendations for upkeep.
How do you know if a tractor is in good condition?
The following factors will help:
Agricultural machinery refers to machines used in doing various types of farm work. The use of machines in doing various work started during the industrialization period in the middle ages culminated in the contemporary time. Understandably, technology advanced and various types of machines for doing various work in the farm with automated technology was introduced. With these machines, a lot of work can be accomplished in just a few hours.
Agricultural machines have been designed for practically every stage of the agricultural process. They include machines for tilling the soil, planting seeds, irrigation, cultivating crops, protecting them from pests and weeds, harvesting, threshing grain, sorting and packaging the products and livestock feeding. Agricultural machinery can also be used to cultivate and harvest crops.
