Agricultural technology is the technology used in agriculture for working farmland and caring for animals. The tools utilized for this can be used in both stationary and mobile situations. This industry also deals with systems for animal husbandry, process technology in the production of various crop plants, and mechanical engineering.
The functionalities of agricultural tools include various processes to control and support the life cycle of plant or animal products. Therefore, in plant production the machines are used for the cultivation of arable land, the planting of seeds, their watering, harvesting, processing and packing. In animal husbandry, the tools are used for tasks including the preparation, dosage and mixing of feeds, as well as for the basic processing of animal products.
As well as manufacturing, the sale and servicing of these agricultural tools are also some of the sub-sectors of this industry. Other topics in agricultural technology relate to the field of energy technology, waste processing and the provision and use of renewable raw materials.Agricultural technology includes a variety of equipment. From agricultural machinery for forestry and arable farming, to equipment such as front loaders or mixing wagons that are used on the farm. Agricultural machinery and vehicles can be roughly divided into four different categories. These include livestock rearing, forestry technology, agricultural vehicles and crop growing. In crop growing, there is also a difference between equipment for soil cultivation and for pasture land.
