In tracing growth of the agricultural tractor, past and current trends are examined in several important aspects of farm tractor design. Among these are vehicle horsepower, horsepower to weight ratio, auxiliary uses of tractor power, and operator environment and convenience options. A knowledge of trends in agriculture and tractor design strengthens one for meeting challenges of the future.
