Popular Farming Terms Defined

As you likely know, there are various types of farmers all over the world. These agriculture and dairy specialists take great care in growing crops, handling livestock, and fertilizing land. While some farmers specialize in organic produce, others focus on fish hatcheries. Unique machinery, tractors, and equipment must be used daily in this business. After all, using the right tools and machinery leads to better sales for farmers. In order to gain a fuller understanding of farms and farming, take a look at the defined terms found below.

  • Cultivator – A type of farm implement or tool that is used to till soil or land. More specifically, cultivators pulverize and stir dirt aggressively in order to aerate and prep soil for planting. These machines and devices typically have steel teeth or blades.
  • Drip Irrigation – This is a method that allows water to drip at a slow pace to the roots of plants or surrounding soil. Fertilizer is also given to plants through drip irrigation. This method is also referred to as microirrigation or trickle irrigation.
  • Aquaculture Equipment – This is equipment designed specifically for fish hatcheries and acquaculture. Some examples of this equipment are fish elevators, size-sorting machines, aerators, feeding machines, and transfer tanks.
  • Organic Agriculture – A form or method of agriculture that involves natural farming techniques and practices. Often green manure, crop rotation, compost, and natural pest control measures are used to grow crops. No manufactured pesticides and fertilizers are used. This way all produce, dairy and meat sales are completely natural.
  • Tree Spade Truck – A truck used to remove and plant large trees. It has a device on the rear of the vehicle that aids with the removal of Christmas, apple, and other fruit trees.

    Farms are areas of land that are used specifically for growing crops, rearing animals, and dealing with agriculture. While some farms are completely organic, others use synthetic components to assist with the growth of crops and livestock. Machinery and heavy-duty equipment, such as tractors and irrigation tools, are commonly used on farmland. Regardless of whether the farm is dealing with dairy products, fish, poultry, or fruits like apples, the general goal is to make sales. There are all sorts of farms these days. While some of them are family owned, others are run by the management services of large businesses. You can expect to see certain tractors and other machinery on most farms. It is pretty common for farmers to utilize tractors and horses daily for routine tasks. Then again, professionals who run Christmas tree farms or fish hatcheries do not typically need the same kind of heavy equipment. However, little tools or basic machinery may still be required for routine tasks. As you may be well aware, most agricultural lots and small organic farmlands are dealt with outside of the city. However, these professionals do typically supply major urban areas with anything from dairy products and fish to fruit and livestock meats. You can learn more about organic farming, agriculture, fish hatchery sales, and livestock ranches by surfing the web. This is a simple and convenient way to gather additional information on these topics. Then again, if you know someone in this line of work, you might also be able to get information from him or her as well.
