With the rapid growth of farm mechanisation over the last two decades, it naturally follows that there has been a great increase in mechanical knowledge among farmers and a greater demand for further knowledge. In many overseas countries and in at least one Australian State, there are now Institutes of Agricultural Engineering which, apart from training graduates, carry out research work and, in some cases, report on tractor and implement performances and thus provide sound practical guidance for farmers contemplating the purchase of new equipment.
