The Canadian agricultural business is quite a lucrative industry and is also a major part of Canada’s exports. When you set up your own farm or agriculture center, you must ensure that you have the right equipment at hand.
1. Pickup Truck
An SUV, no matter what its boot size, cannot do what a pickup truck does. The open boot of the pickup truck gives flexibility to carry a lot of things. Whether it is sacks of seed, manure or portable equipment, you won’t have any trouble taking it around in a pickup truck.
A tractor works as your go-to utility vehicle. It can have many uses. Depending on what you attached behind the tractor, you can give your farm a whole range of capabilities, from mowing acres of land, digging a foundation, baling hay or pushing snow. The large tires, coupled with a powerful engine, make the tractor a very capable device.
The tractor’s engine brings your farm enough power to complete basic farming tasks.
A seeding drill makes the process of planting seeds in the ground a simple task. It operates on the basis of a seed drill that sows the seed inside the ground at the correct depth for the crop to grow.
4. Manure Spreader
A manure spreader can make your job of spreading fertile soil on the land easier. The manure is loaded onto the trailer and a rotating mechanism distributes the manure. The manure spreader must be connected to the tractor so you can move it easily.
The sprayer ensures that your pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers are sprayed on your crops.
Also known as a swather, a windrower makes work at the farm easier. It helps harvest the crop quickly and efficiently. The windrower uses a sharp reel to cut the stems of the crop. The cut crop falls onto a canvas or auger conveyor from where it is picked up. The windrower offers a more affordable option than the combine harvester, though at reduced functionality.
At the end of a season, you’ll have lots of crops to harvest. The combine harvester does all the three jobs of reaping, threshing, and winnowing. If you can use a tractor, you’ll be able to use a combine harvester with no trouble. Though it costs more than a windrower, it is able to do much more than it.
Once your crop is harvested, you will need to transport it. The container will keep the grain safe and secure from the environment outside until you take it to the storehouse.
