what can agriculture mechanics do for you
What can Agriculture Mechanics do for you?
  • It teaches important skills that can be used at home, in business, or for fun.
  • We need ag mechanics to maintain equipment and keep productivity high.
  • Many careers in agriculture involve basic ag mechanics skills.
agriculture mechanics are found throughout several jobs
Agriculture Mechanics are found throughout several jobs
  • The engineer who designs tractors and other farm and ranch machines
  • The Forester who keeps chainsaws and other equipment going
  • The Soil Conservationist who construct terraces to control erosion
  • The hardware store employee who must locate repair parts for agriculture tools and machines
  • The designer and installer of field, turf, landscape, and golf course drainage and irrigation systems
  • The lawn equipment service mechanic who repairs lawn tractors
  • The welder who repairs farm machinery
  • The mechanic who keeps the diesel trucks and machines going
the influence of mechanics
The Influence of Mechanics
  • America provided the inventors for many of the world’s most important agricultural machines.
  • In 1776, 90% of the population were farmers with a farm to nonfarm ratio of 9 to 1 and food supply was at a minimum.
  • Today, less then 10% of all Americans work in agriculture with a farm to nonfarm ratio of 1 to 9 and generally food surpluses in America.
  • Mechanics has played a major role in this rise of production efficiency.

The efficiency of American Agriculture will increase in the future as computer controlled machines and robotics play an important part.
  • Ag mechanics has been fundamental to the development of the agricultural industry in this country.
  • Much of the tremendous increase in the efficiency of American producers is due to the innovations in mechanics.

The wiring of buildings to supply power
  • The repairing of engines and equipment
  • The laying of pipe for water supplies
  • and the construction of buildings are only a few examples of mechanics in agriculture.
  • As further advancements are made the role of mechanics in agriculture will be as important in the future as it has been in the past.
