Best Tractors

With a decline in fossil fuel supply (inevitable in the medium to long term) the attention will switch to renewable sources for on-farm fuel use and to renewable and/or nuclear for off-farm electricity generation. The renewable fuel that is most likely to be suitable for use in tractors and other self-propelled machines is esterified oil from oilseeds.
The overall sequence of operations (Figure 8) is orientated towards protecting post-harvest product quality and minimizing loss due to deterioration occasioned by respiration, microbial activity, insects or rodents. Control of respiration (i.e. conversion of carbohydrates to carbon dioxide and water) in crop products is achieved by temperature reduction, most usually by refrigeration but also by periodic ventilation typically of the cold night air.
