The tractor is the most important and versatile vehicle in any agricultural enterprise. The ways it can be used are multiplied through all kinds of attachments: plows, harrows, seeders, hay rakes, huskers or mowers - the range is enormous. Giant machines such as the combine or potato harvester are also used on farms. This book explains what time of year these vehicles are used and shows - with the help of flaps - how they work.
How is hay formed into neat bales? Why do the fields sometimes stink? Where does the farmer get such huge machines, like the harvester? All of these questions are clearly answered. And finally, the book concludes with a board game integrated into it.
