3. Agricultural equipment used during planting: Planters, transplanters, broadcast seeder, air seeder, seed drill, precision drill, etc.

4. Agricultural equipment used for spreading fertilizers or spraying other agrochemicals: Examples are sprayers, fertilizer spreader, manure spreaders, etc. These are mainly used for application of fertilizers and pest control.

5. Agricultural equipment used for irrigation: Examples are irrigators used for drip irrigation or centre pivot irrigation as well as hydroponics, etc.

6. Agricultural equipment used for sorting agricultural products according to colour, size, taste, weight, density, etc. These includes colour sorters, density sorters, weight sorters, blemish sorters, shape sorters, etc.

7. Agricultural equipment used for harvesting and those used after harvesting: Typical examples are the various types of harvesters and post-harvesters such as combined harvesters, tractors, fanning mills, threshers, reapers, farm trucks, sugarcane harvesters, cotton picker, rice harvesters, cotton harvesters, wagon, forage harvester, mowers, corn harvesters, etc.

8. Agricultural equipment used in making hays such as balers, mowers, hay tedder and hay rake, etc.

9. Agricultural equipment used for loading agricultural products: Examples are loaders such as backhoe loaders, front-end loaders, etc.

10. Agricultural equipment used for milking e.g. Milking machine

11. Other farm equipment are carts, hedge cutters, livestock trailers, mulching machines, trimmers

 

AGROCHEMICALS

Fertilizers

Liming Agents and Acidifying Agents

Liming agents and acidifying agents are used when there is too much soil acidity or soil alkalinity. Liming agents and acidifying agents are agriculture chemicals used maintaining a balance and acidity of the soil because different plants do better in different soil.

Pesticides, Insecticides and Herbicides

Pesticides are agriculture chemicals and insecticides are types of pesticides that kill insects. Herbicides are agriculture chemicals that kill weeds and/or other unwanted plants and so herbicides are types of pesticides

Plant Hormones or Phytohormones or Plant Growth Agents

Plant hormones are also called phytohormones. Plant hormones are typical agriculture chemicals or chemical messengers produced in some parts of a plant which however have physiological functions on target tissues which may be away from the site where they are produced.

 

AGRICULTURAL SERVICES

FORESTRY & WOOD PRODUCTS

The wood industry or lumber industry is a—usually private — economic sector concerned with forestry, logging, timber trade, and the production of forest products, timber / lumber , primary forest and wood products (e.g. furniture) and secondary products like wood pulp for the pulp and paper industry.

Forest industry resources include whole trees, logging residues, and processing residues.

Whole trees from forests, plantations, orchards, etc. include those harvested specifically for energy, those removed as part of commercial thinning operations, those removed due to disease or death, and those removed to reduce forest fire potential (i.e., fuel treatment materials).

 Logging residues (also called primary forest residues) are the materials resulting from tree collection/harvesting operations and include tree tops, twigs, and branches.

 Processing residues (also called secondary forest residues) are the fine and coarse wood, sawdust, and bark produced during wood processing at sawmills, veneer mills, and furniture and cabinet makers, as well as black liquor produced during the kraft pulping process.
