While tractorization is restricted to primary and secondary tillage and substantial use of haulage, and with the cost benefit equation changing with increase in labour, it is important to provide models of mechanization that are relevant to small and marginal farms.

With a foresight that moving from tractorization to spearheading mechanization is the key to improve farm productivity and rein in labor costs, TAFE has been collaborating with world technology leaders to establish its Farm Equipment Division (FED) to efficiently answer the emerging needs of the global farming community.
