Mechanized agriculture is the process of using agricultural machinery to mechanize the work of agriculture, greatly increasing farm productivity. Mechanization covers all levels of farming and processing technologies, from simple and basic hand tools to more sophisticated and motorized equipment. It eases and reduces hard labour, relieves labour shortages, improves productivity and timeliness of agricultural operations, improves the efficient use of resources, enhances market access and contributes to mitigating climate related hazards. Without mechanized agriculture, farm operations are either partially done or sometimes completely neglected, resulting in low yield due to poor growth or untimely harvesting or both. There is a positive correlation between application of improved technologies and the land productivity.
