It requires a whole process of milk production and distribution to consumers. It has a background history dated back from 11,000 years ago where cattle were used to breed in a domestic home environment for a purpose of milk production.

The cows are fed with organic feed to enable them to give out a maximum amount of milk. Apart from cows, there are also some other animal species used for milking such as goats, sheep, and camels. There are many different ways of milking including hand milking, vacuum bucket milking, milking pipelines, milking parlors, and fully automatic robotic milking.

Al-Ghazi: Plowing ahead

A subsidiary of the Al-Futtaim group of Dubai, Al-Ghazi Tractors Limited is a manufacturer of New Holland tractors in technical co-operation with Case New Holland, the foremost manufacturer of agricultural tractors in the world. Being a household name amongst the farming community, AGTL has a widespread presence across Pakistan, with as many as 82 dealers and 3,000 mechanical workshops spread all over the country. Following the fiasco that was last year, AGTLs half-yearly records show that the company is on the much firmer ground this time around. While 2011 started out on a great note -with Al-Ghazi managing to post a record profit of Rs972.8 million during 1QFY11, which was incidentally the highest since its inception- the following quarters saw a crash in the market following the sudden imposition of a 16 percent sales tax on agricultural equipment.

In the months to follow, AGTL, along with other tractor manufacturers, witnessed tractor sales plummet dangerously and had to suffer long stretches of the plant closure. Fast forward nearly a year, and the second quarter ended sales of nearly Rs4.6 billion- jumping 29 percent from the same period last year – are a testament to the fact that the company is back on track following its previous trajectory of success. Whereas a comparison with sales figures from the same period last year reveals unnaturally flattering growth statistics due to the low-base effect, a comparison of sales against the same period in 2010 reveals a healthy increase of 4 percent during the 2QFY12. However, a similar comparison between FY11 and FY12 at half-year draws negatives for 2012, mainly because of the exceptional first quarter that AGTL had in FY11 which saw them selling 8,602 tractors as compared to 6,004 that were delivered during the first quarter of FY12. Following the company’s initiative to engage pro-actively with farmers and introduce a newer version of agricultural implements, sales have gone up to Rs 7.9 billion at the half year-mark and the pent-up demand from last year means that they are likely to go up higher in the coming quarters.

With profit after taxation going up to Rs596 million versus Rs510 million that was recorded during the second quarter, earnings have climbed up to Rs13.88 per share as compared to an EPS of Rs 11.89 per share recorded at the close of 2QFY11. Looking forward, production and demand for the locally manufactured agricultural implements are likely to remain strong. During the first quarter, AGTL recorded bookings for 9,234 tractors, out of which it could produce only 4,350 units. Similarly, the Sindh government has also announced the launch of the 3rd leg of its rural incentive scheme which will see the distribution of 6,000 tractors among farmers at a subsidized rate. Subsequently, the backlog of orders and demand glut for tractors is therefore likely to keep the industry steady on its feet and AGTL thriving in the coming months.

History of Agriculture

What is Agriculture?

Agriculture is a basic necessity for all human beings in the world and has been derived from the two essential terms of “Agri” n “Cultura” which means field and cultivation. It has an ancient historical background initially originated back from 20,000 BC with the domestication of plants and animals. Prior to agriculture, people used to live a nomadic hunter-style living as they hunt for animals and move out of the city to city with not any permanent place of residence. As the flock of animals started to move to other places, there was having a lack of food supply that was a time when people started a new way of plant cultivation system for a proper systematic arrangement of food supply for them on a constant basis. The first agricultural cultivation was started off in South Western Asia and Northern Africa with plantations of wild grains, barley, peas, lentils, chickpeas, and linen fiber. From that time on, agricultural farming became a strong need and necessity for humans to supplementing their food supply with an increase in population. The history of agriculture has been mainly categorized into different stages of prehistory, early civilization, modern agriculture farming, and ecological organic farming.

Pre-Historic Agriculture
The pre-historic era of agriculture describes the Stone Age nomadic hunter living when there was a tradition of making a prey of wild animals to serve as edible food. There was not a proper arrangement of a provision of the food supply. Due to climatic change and the retreating of glaciers, nomadic communities started to have a permanent settlement and initiated cultivating for food.

Early Agriculture Civilization
Early Civilization Era of Agriculture was started somewhere around 5000 BC. It was a time when there was a significant increase in agriculture cultivation with Sumerian, Egyptian, Indus Valley, ancient Chinese, Greek, and Roman civilization.  The Mesoamerica, Southern America, Northern America, and Australia are also valuable countries to flourish agriculture field farming.

Modern Agriculture Farming
The modernized farming era was introduced with the British agriculture revolution between the sixteenth and the mid-nineteenth century. They adopted the newest modes of mechanized farming techniques such as four-field crop rotation for maintaining soil nutrients and employed scientific fertilizing methods for boosting up soil productivity.

Organic Ecological Farming
Organic Ecological Farming is an eco-friendly way of agriculture farming that helps in increasing genetic diversity, natural soil cultivation, fertile soil structure, pests, and weeds control. It helps produces crops with better nutrition for a healthy root plantation system and also to maintain sustainable land fertility and biological soil activity. It minimizes in-organic waste and maximized crop productivity by avoiding conventional chemical pest fertilizers. It protects the healthy ecological environment with green manure, crop rotation, and mineral.  The no-till agriculture practice helps provide organic productive soil conditions with better results. Agriculture has a long transition from ancient to the modern way of farming. Tractors.pk is a leading supplier of advanced branded tractors which provides ease of farming and helps increases efficiency in performing complicated tasks in a simplified manner with less time and effort to raise productivity.

History of Mechanized Farming

Mechanized Farming is a new way of a mechanical farming technique that uses tractor machines to cultivate the land and help lessen the burden of human labor effort. The latest era of innovation has provided rapid advancement in agriculture farming which has increased both efficiency and productivity.

Mechanized Farming Africa

Gone are the days when oxen carts were drawn on a huge area for the purpose of soil cultivation it used to require hours of exhausting manual effort to make a fertile productive land.

The history of mechanized farming was exactly introduced in 1700 when Jethro Tull, an agriculturist, invented a horse-drawn seed drill that used to sow seeds in neatly organized rows. This invention brought about a huge revolution in British agriculture and was considered a first mechanized device for farming. He also invented a horse-drawn hoe which was a versatile hand tool for both agriculture and horticulture used to perform various tasks with ease such as soil shaping, weeds removing, and harvesting root crops.

Another huge mechanized farming invention was the combined harvester introduced in the year 1880 which combines both thresher and reaper for better crop harvesting. With the advent of internal combustion tractors in the modern era of 1900 and the first tractor was introduced as ford tractor in 1917. This brought a dynamic revolution in the field of agriculture and reduced a lot of manual work by taking over the responsibility of handling farming operations.

Now tractors have become a vital need for every farmer to perform farming tasks to save time and effort with more efficiency and increased performance. Today agriculture farming has much simplified with no more complications in performing tasks with the latest machines like light and medium-duty tractors, trucks, combine harvesters, and farm implements to provide ease of labor and rise in productivity.
