Problems can occur with any tractor, either new or secondhand. Sometimes these problems are to do with defects in the machine, or with parts and sometimes they are to do with poor maintenance or simple checks and remedies.

Below are listed some of the most common problems with the John Deere tractor, and some general ideas as to how these problems can normally be dealt with.

Tractor won’t start

Check the following

  • Check the transmission gear shift lever. It may not be in the right position. Place the range shift lever into neutral and check the engine throttle lever is not put forward. Move the throttle half or full impulse.
  • Check and see if the battery connection is loose or corroded. Check connections and retighten it necessary
  • Check and see if the fuel shutoff valve is closed.
  • Check and see if the fuel is either stale, or at an improper fuel level. Drain the tank if necessary of all fuel and refill.
  • Check if the engine oil viscosity is correct or not, and if not completely change the oil in the tractor.there
  • Check and see if the fuel filter is plugged, and if necessary place.
  • check if the air intake filter is plugged, and if it is clean or if necessary replace the air filter elements.
  • Checked to see if any of the fuses have blown and if necessary replace one or all of them.

 Tractor won’t start, just clicks

Check the following

  • Could be potential battery issues. Check that all the motor and battery connections are clean and tight.
  • Check the battery voltage and its holding power and replace it necessary.

Tractor cranks but will not start

  • The fuel may not be getting to the cylinder. check the fuel level, the shutoff valve and the fuel filter.
  • Check the air filter. It may be too cold for the cylinder to combust mixture of air and fuel.
  • Move the throttle back to idle and then half throttle and attempt to restart

Starting diesel engines in cold weather

  • Use proper seasonal diesel blends. Winter blends have certain additives to ensure that they remain liquid when it is cold.
  • Watch and check for bio diesel percentages
  • idle the engines for a time before using, this increases its efficiency and range.
  • Maintain the cooling system properly. Check the overall level and quality of coolant.
  • Use various engine starting aids if necessary. Some of the most common are glow plugs, intake preheaters and block heaters.
  • if the engine fails to start, this could be due to the cold start system malfunctioning, the fuel injectors may be dirty or there may be a faulty switch.

Engine problems.

Either the engine went start, or it is hard to start or start and then stalls. Check the following :

  • There may be no fuel flow. check the tank, hoses, feel shutoff valve and fuel filter. Make sure they are all functioning properly and that there are no leaks from any of them.
  • The exhaust smoke may be black. This may be due to too much oil, a clogged air filter or dirty fuel.
  • The exhaust smoke may be blue or white. This may be due to fuel inside the muffler, a clogged fuel injection nozzle, poor quality fuel, a defective thermostat or that may be sediment in the fuel which may also be stale.

Engine may be overheating.

Check the following

  • The engine may be overloaded, in human terms too much may be asked of it. Lighten the load or shift to a lower gear
  • The coolant level may be low check and see if it needs refilling and also check the hoses and radiator to make sure there are no links or loose connections.
  • There may be a blockage in the coolant system that is affecting its flow. Best thing to do is to completely flush the whole coolant system and replace as necessary.
  • The fan belt may be loose or damaged. It should be easy to check for wear and tear and any tension and replace as necessary.
  • The radiator core or screens and dirty and simply cleaning them maybe enough to solve the problem.

Honda Snowblower Parts and Manuals

Honda Snowblower Parts

Honda made a wide range of snowblowers, Single Stage, Two Stage and Three Stage.

The majority of their snowblowers have electric start systems, and those that don’t can normally be fitted as an optional extra.

Honda snowblowers are lightweight, easy to operate, dependable and quiet. They have an ability to clear snow quickly and efficiently.

Most snowblowers will at some point need spare parts, either for routine servicing and maintenance, or if for any reason the machine needs repairing. Having a copy of the snowblower manual is really important for a number of reasons.

Honda Snowblower Manual

The manual gives important information about safe operating practices, very important to read as there is potential for real damage if the snowblower is not used correctly.

Quite often new snowblowers arrive out of the box as it were and need to be assembled. A Honda snowblower manual will give you the information and diagrams about how to assemble a snowblower.

Most manuals also include illustrated diagrams of the workings of the engine and other associated parts.

Such a diagram is really important, not only in assembling the machine, but also in being able to identify which parts need replacing, and how new ones should be installed.

The manual should also include a troubleshooting section which will give information on the most common problems people have with the snowblower.

This includes things like problems with starting it, and how best to keep the auger free of snow.

The snowblower manual also have a detailed section on servicing and maintenance.

This is essentially the manufacturers recommendations and should be closely followed.

This is important not only for the smooth running of the snowblower itself, but also to make sure it complies with the warranty.

The manual should give information about the Honda warranty itself.

There are normally some differences if the snowblower is used for commercial operations, and as such there are likely to be separate residential and commercial warranties on the machine

It is likely that the engine itself, if made by a separate manufacturer, will have a separate warranty as well. Details of all these should be included in the manual.

Finally, the manual should contain full details of customer support. This should include the headquarters of the company, phone numbers and e-mails and any other way to contact them.

Craftsman Snowblower Parts and Manuals

Craftsman Snowblower Parts

Craftsman made a wide range of snowblowers, Single Stage, Two Stage and Three Stage. They range from 21 inch to 28 inch width capacity.

The majority of their snowblowers have electric start systems, and those that don’t can normally be fitted as an optional extra.

Craftsman snowblowers are lightweight, easy to operate, dependable and quiet. They have an ability to clear snow quickly and efficiently.

Most snowblowers will at some point need spare parts, either for routine servicing and maintenance, or if for any reason the machine needs repairing. Having a copy of the snowblower manual is really important for a number of reasons.

Craftsman Snowblower Manual

The manual gives important information about safe operating practices, very important to read as there is potential for real damage if the snowblower is not used correctly.

Quite often new snowblowers arrive out of the box as it were and need to be assembled. A craftsman snowblower manual will give you the information and diagrams about how to assemble a snowblower.

Most manuals also include illustrated diagrams of the workings of the engine and other associated parts.

Such a diagram is really important, not only in assembling the machine, but also in being able to identify which parts need replacing, and how new ones should be installed.

The manual  should also include a troubleshooting section which will give information on the most common problems people have with the snowblower.

This includes things like problems with starting it, and how best to keep the auger free of snow.

The snowblower manual also have a detailed section on servicing and maintenance.

This is essentially the manufacturers recommendations and should be closely followed.

This is important not only for the smooth running of the snowblower itself, but also to make sure it complies with the warranty.

The manual should give information about the  Craftsman warranty itself.

There are normally some differences if the snowblower is used for commercial operations, and as such there are likely to be separate residential and commercial warranties on the machine

It is likely that the engine itself, if made by a separate manufacturer, will have a separate warranty as well. Details of all these should be included in the manual.

Finally, the manual should contain full details of customer support. This should include the headquarters of the company, phone numbers and e-mails and any other way to contact them.

Ariens Snowblower

Ariens Snowblower

Ariens is an American company, based in Brillon, Wisconsin, who make a wide range of machines and power tools used in gardens, lawn and small landholdings. They have built up a strong reputation over many years for their snowblowers to be both lightweight yet dependable, easy to operate and quiet.

They are machines that clear snow in a fast and efficient manner.

The range of Ariens snowblowers fall into a number of categories that they classify as track, professional, platinum, deluxe, compact, classic, crossover, professional, Path pro and S 18, as well as a power brush.

All these snowblowers are different in their design and capabilities, but they all have one thing in common. They are designed to be easy to use, powerful, have convenient controls, be fuel efficient and at the same time powerful enough to clear large quantities of snow.

Ariens Snowblower Parts

Spare parts for any snowblower are likely to be needed, either for normal servicing and maintenance, or to replace existing parts that may be broken or don’t work properly. It should be borne in mind that if the snowblower is under warranty, then manufacturers parts will need to be used as replacements.

Parts for a snowblower can cover almost literally hundreds of different components, depending upon the area of the snowblower that the parts are needed for. The most common areas include hydraulics, engine, gears, electrical systems, transmissions and the snowblower body itself.

Parts can be bought online, as well as through Ariens dealerships. If buying online, it is really important to get the exact part number needed, before purchasing it.

If also a really good idea to have a copy of the manual to hand, as it is likely to have a diagram of how and where the part is to be fitted, as well as a more general description of how that particular piece of the snowblower functions.

Ariens Snowblower Oil

Using the right oil in a snowblower is really important, different types of oil will work slightly differently in different engines, and can have a long-term effect on both the efficiency and durability of the snowblower itself.

The manual for the snowblower should detail exactly what type of oil is to be used, how much is to be put in, and how often it should be replaced.

As with any type of machinery, the oil levels and the gasoline levels should be periodically checked to make sure they are adequate. This is especially important if the machine has not been used for a long period of time.

It may also be necessary to drain the oil in the event that the snowblower is to be laid up several months, as well as the gasoline. Reference should be made to the manufacturers owner manual to see exactly what advice they give on this, and on all areas of servicing and maintenance.

Ariens Snowblower Dealers

One of the advantages of buying from an Ariens dealership is it will be possible to see and feel the snowblower itself, and possibly see it in action as well. Getting a feel, literally, for a machine can be really important. It gives the potential buyer a sense of how it really works, that is not always possible to get a manual or watching a video.

Dealerships can also give advice on the best type of snowblower to buy. This should help the prospective customer following through a process of first working out what type of land snowblower is to be used upon, especially approximately how much snow is likely to be cleared, or needed to be cleared and how often.

This type of information would normally determine whether or not the customer needs a one or two stage snowblower, or possibly something more powerful if there is a commercial element involved.

Ariens Snowblower Manual

Anyone buying a new Ariens Snowblower should automatically get a copy of the manual with it, if any reason they don’t, it is normally possible to download a PDF copy from the company website.

Many people buy their snowblower online from stores such as Amazon or Sears, and there may well be times when for some reason the manual is not included. Aside from the manufacturer’s website, there are a number of other specialist websites online where it possible to a PDF copy of the manual.

Some of the sites are free, and some make a small charge. It is also possible to obtain manuals from sites such as Amazon and eBay.

In the event of being unable to obtain a copy of the manual, then specific queries regarding parts and or diagrams that would normally be found in the manual can be posted online, either to a Facebook group to a discussion forum. This will normally elicit a response that can either give the customer the information they need, or point them in the right direction

Ariens Snowblower Wont Start / Repairs

Any Ariens snowblower can have teething problems, or need basic repairs doing at any point. Common problems tend to be things such as the snowblower not starting. In the event of this being the case, it is a really good idea to check the basics first and make sure there is enough gasoline and oil, and that there are no safety mechanisms in place which would prevent the machine from starting.

If all the basics are correct, and the machine still does not start, then it is a good idea to approach a local dealership, or post a query online to try and obtain specific advice as to how best to deal with it.

Ariens Snowblower Reviews

People love reviews of products as they feel it gives them a degree of confidence as to whether they should or should not buy a particular machine,or product,  such as a snowblower.

Any review, especially one online, should be taken with a degree of caution, whatever its contents. This is not to say that reviews do not have a place, as they obviously do.

One of the best ways to look at reviews for any Ariens snowblower is to look at videos on YouTube and other video sharing sites. These videos are normally promotional in terms of being made by the manufacturer or by a dealership, and are unashamedly sales videos.

They do however get a really good insight into the machines operating at their best, and are a good place to start

Following that, if a particular model has been decided upon, it is worth browsing through some discussion groups and forums to see if there are any practical problems or mechanical issues that people have experienced.

If there are significant mechanical or electrical or technical problems with the snowblower these are likely to act up by several different users, along with any remedies that they or the manufacturer have found that solve the problem.

This will normally give any potential customer a more rounded view of the machine itself, which should help make the decision as to whether to buy or not a bit easier.

Toro Snowblower Manual

Every new Toro snowblower should come with a manual, but if for any reason another one is needed they are normally fairly readily available. Mauals can often be obtained from the main Toro website by simply identifying the make, model and number of the machine.

A manual is crucial for a number of reasons. It carries extensive safety equipment, gives detailed instructions on how to assemble the server if it is being bought from new, and has extensive diagrams showing how parts can be fitted.

A manual should be studied when the machine is first bought, but also kept close to hand as a reference source when needed. The manual will also give important information about how to store the snowblower when it is not being used especially during summer months.

Toro Snowblower Repair / Wont Start

Users of a snowblower will normally have a number of questions relating to its operation, and normally have some common problems that need addressing. The most important is often that the machine won’t start.

The most important thing is to check the basics first. These include oil, gas and any safety features that are included to make sure the machine cannot be started inadvertently.

Once basics have been looked at, if the problem still persists, then the owner should consult the manual for further advice, followed by looking through the various snowblower forums online where it is highly likely they will find similar problems posted and solved.

If these do not deal with the problem, then it is advisable to contact a Toro dealership, especially if the machine is still under warranty.

Toro Electric Start Snowblower

Most Toro snowblowers either come with or have the option have an electric start system fitted to the snowblower. The alternative is normally a pulley system, which can sometimes be quite strenuous, and can also be quite difficult to use.

Electric starts much easier, and are becoming standard on most snowblowers. They are normally self powered, and do not require a cable, as opposed to electric snowblowers themselves, that are generally powered by an electric cable.

There are some electric snowblowers that have a self charging battery, which can run for several hours once charged. These are becoming more popular and are likely to increase in availability and market share in the coming months and years

Craftsman Snowblower

Craftsman Snowblower

Craftsmen make a range of snow blowers, that  are virtually all electric start, and either one stage or two-stage snow throwers or snowblowers. A one stage snowblower is meant for clearing areas of land that have had a relatively mild snowfall, sometimes estimated up to 7 or 8 inches, and where the snow is considered light or mushy.

A two-stage snowblower is a more powerful machine, and is designed to not only draw in snow through the auger, but also to break it up into smaller chunks, if it is hardened or frozen. Most two-stage snowblowers also have a more powerful ejector mechanism to throw out the snow through a elevated chute.

Both one stage and two-stage Craftsman snowblowers can be used in a variety of settings, ranging from domestic to smallholdings. When deciding which one to buy, it is important to assess what type of  land or ground the snowblower is going to be used on. It is also important to consider the type of snow that usually falls, its volume and its frequency.

A craftsman snowblower that has an electric start should eliminate the hassle of a cold engine start, which anyone familiar with any type of engine driven machine would appreciate. It has a self propelled drive that has six forward and two reverse speeds, that make handling and control significantly easier than some of the types of snowblower.

Most types of craftsmen snowblower have a significantly enhanced chute, that is really important in being able to eliminate the snow on the ground where it has been cleared. They also normally have an in dash headlight, that allows the operator to see what is going on, in what is likely to be poor visibility, or conditions where there is no visibility at all, which is usual in snowy weather.

All these factors determine whether a one or two stage snowblower is best, and will allow the individual a good degree of guidance on how best to use it.

Below are listed a number of craftsmen snowblowers, both one stage, two stage and electric or manual start.

Craftsman 24 inch electric start to stage snowblower

Craftsman 21 inch electric start single stage snowblower

Craftsman 21 inch 123 cc electric start single stage snowblower

Craftsman 21 inch 123 single stage snowblower

Craftsman Snowblower Parts

Before buying any snowblower, it is a good idea to check out the availability and price of spare parts, and what range of accessories is available. The issue of parts is less important if the Craftsman snowblower is new, as it will be covered under a warranty. Long-term usage will probably necessitate some spares,  although craftsmen have a strong reputation for reliability and long-term durability of their snow blowers.

The most common craftsman snowblower parts that people buy are listed below, and are available from a wide range of sources, both online and in many department stores.

Craftsman Snowblower Manual

A manual is fairly essential, and they are widely available both from Craftsmen, department stores such as Sears and various websites online. As with all snowblower manuals there is a opening section on safe operating of the snowblower, which should be carefully read and always adhered to. This normally covers training, preparation, operation and guidance for maintenance and storage.

The manual will have a number of sections after the rules for safe operation. These normally relate to the assembly of the snowblower, its operation, recommendations as to how often and what type of service should be carried out on it, the responsibilities of the owner of the snowblower and a significant amount of information on how to adjust the various parts of the snowblower such as the auger, the belt and the cable adjustment.

There should also be sections on safe storage, a troubleshooting chart, repair parts, a parts ordering service and how to order repair parts.

In the unlikely event that a customer is not able to get hold of a snowblower manual for that specific model, which may be the case on some older models, then a manual for a current one stage or two-stage manual will probably have sufficient information to allow the individual to deal with whatever query they may have.

Craftsman Snowblower Attachment

Craftsman make a number of attachments that can be fitted to most of their snowblowers, which are listed below. In addition, many snowblower manufacturers make similar attachments which can probably be used with most Craftsmen snowblowers. Before using any attachment from a different manufacturer, it is probably worth checking that you are not in breach of the Craftsman warranty if you do so.

Craftsman 24837 12 inch dual stage snowblower attachment

Craftsmen 24441 42 inch snow blade attachment

craftsman 24414 16 inch  high snow and dozer blade

Craftsman 24 Snowblower

This normally refers to a 24 inch, 208 mL electric start two stage snowblower, one of the best selling of the craftsman snowblower range, and one of its most popular.

It has a 208 mL engine, a pushbutton electric start mechanism, a serrated steel auger that is able to cut through impacted snow with an impressive speed, a self-propelled drive consisting of six forward and two reverse speeds, and the ability to control the flow of the snow through the dispersal chute, with 180 degree rotation. It also has 13 inch tires, which offer an exceptional level of traction on slippery surfaces and conditions.

Some people describe the machine as a bit heavy, but even so is easy to navigate and use.

Honda Snowblower

Honda Snowblower

Honda make a number of snowblowers, and bring a vast level of experience in different types of power equipment to both design and effectiveness of single stage and two stage snowblowers. Honda snowblowers have 4 stroke engines, hydrostatic transmission, track drive, ice breaking serrated augers, and commercial grade components.

Before deciding which Honda snowblower to choose, there are a number of factors to take into account to make sure you choose the right type of snowblower. Firstly, it is important to know what type of surface needs to be cleared of snow. Different types of snowblower work better on concrete, asphalt or different types of rough surfaces.

It is also important to know the size of the area that needs to be cleared, in addition to the type and frequency of snowfall. It is normally fairly possible to gauge both of these factors based on past experience, or local common knowledge.

The other important decision to make is whether to buy a Honda single stage snowblower, or a Honda two stage snowblower. Generally speaking, a single stage snowblower is used where the snow is thinner, spread more evenly and should be easier to clear. A single stage snowblower uses a rotating auger, which draws in the snow and simply dispenses through a upward chute away from the snow being cleared.

A two-stage snowblower is normally used where the snow is thicker, more compact and requires a more powerful machine. The main difference in a two-stage snowblower is that not only does it draw the snow into machine, it can then break it down into much smaller chunks, and it uses a fan like  device to reject the snow at a much greater distance than a single stage snowblower can.

Knowing the cost and availability of parts and accessories can be an important factor when deciding which Honda snowblower to buy. All new Honda snowblowers are built and serviced with a warranty, so the issue of parts is more relevant to people who have a long-term usage of machine, or people who buy a second-hand or used one.

There are a number of accessories available for a Honda snowblower, which can make the experience of using one both more enjoyable, safer and more effective. Some of the more common tricks and parts listed below.

Chute Duide Handle

Cold Weather Cabs

Covers

Auger Skid Shoe Kit

Honda Snowblower Dealers

Most Honda Dealers  sell and service Honda power equipment, including Honda snowblowers. Finding a dealer is relatively easy, either by using the main Honda website and going to dealer locator, using local Yellow Pages, a local phone book or simply an Internet search using your location as the fixed point.

A good Honda dealer should be willing to offer both sales and service, some may also offer a rental service and some may have special finance deals available, either on the snowblower itself or on a combination of snowblower and other power equipment.

Honda HS 35 Snowblower

The Honda HS 35 snowblower is one of Honda’s most popular models, and there are a significant number of them available, both used and second-hand. Manuals can be found on various websites such as manuals online, or eBay or Amazon. Information and help can also be sought on any of the snowblower discussion forums.

When using any  relatively old snowblower, it is important to check that the safety shields and mechanisms that are available on current models are also in place on any previous one.

Honda Track Snowblower

Honda snowblowers  use what is called track drive, which are essentially a series of rubber tracks, which according to Honda provide solid traction and perfect balance. The benefit of using a track drive system is that it balances the weight of the snow blower against the weight of the snow on the ground, and means that it is possible to use the rotating auger to effectively measure the traction of the snowblower.

This can make a significant difference when clearing snow off areas of grounds that have a stone base, such as driveways and sidewalks.

MTD Snowblower

MTD Snowblower

MTD snowblowers come as two different types of machine,  a single stage snow thrower and a two-stage snow thrower. The terms snowblower and snow thrower used interchangeably, and it is probably worth distinguishing what they mean.

An MTD single stage snowblower is a relatively light machine, that is used to clear snow that is probably between 3 to 9 inches, and which could be considered a relatively modest snowfall. It works very simply by having a spinning auger that sucks in the snow to the machine, and then discharges it through a chute onto ground away from the snowfall.

Am MTD two-stage snowblower is a more heavyweight machine. It is intended where there is a much more intense degree of snow, and possibly ice as well. It works slightly differently to the single stage snowblower, in that it has a more intense auger, which not only sucks in the snow, but also breaks up large chunks of it, as well as chunks of ice, and then discharges it through the chute.

MTD Parts – see here

Technically, an  MTD snowblower is a single stage snowblower, whilst a snow thrower is a two-stage snowblower, although most people use the term snowblower to cover both machines.

These are some of the most common MTD snowblowers currently available.

MTD Snowblower Parts

MTD snowblower and snow thrower parts and accessories are an important consideration when deciding which snow blower to buy. Whilst a new snowblower will come with a guarantee, if buying a used or second hand one, then availability and cost of parts is something that needs to be considered.

Parts and accessories can improve the experience of using an MTD snowblower, and there are many things that can be easily improvised at a reasonable cost. Some of the more common accessories on listed below.

Snow blower tire chains

Heated hand grip Kit

MTD Snowblower Manual and Parts Diagram

An MTD snowblower manual is a document that is a really good resource, and can be used extensively both as a point of reference and as a learning tool for using an MTD snowblower effectively and safely.

New snowblowers will come with a manual, and can also be downloaded from the MTD website. Older models, or usedor second hand models may also be available via the website depending upon their age, or there are other websites which will carry them such as manuals online.

They may also be available on sites such as eBay or Amazon. If someone is having real difficulty locating a manual, it is a good idea to post a message on one of the many snowblower forums, someone is more than likely to be able to help.

An MTD snowblowers manual is likely to have a number of sections. These will cover safe operating practices, how to assemble your snowblower if necessary, how to operate the snowblower and make adjustments. They should also be sections on maintenance, troubleshooting, accessories and kits and a parts list.

There should also be advice on how to store the snowblower when it is not being used which is a particularly important safety issue, and can be a real fire hazard if not done properly.

MTD Yard Machine Snowblower

An MTD Yard machine snowblower is called this simply so that people realise it is primarily intended for domestic use in homes and small landholdings. These machines can come either as single stage Snow throwers or two-stage snow throwers. The intent is to focus on snowblowers which are affordable for home and yard use.

MTD Snowblower Carburetor / Repairs

An effective  carburettor is at the heart of a really efficient snowblower.

Many people consider it a good idea to replace a carburettor fairly regularly, even if there is nothing noticeably wrong with the old one.

They are relatively cheap, there are a number of brands to choose from, and a new one can make a significant difference to the overall feel and power of the chosen MTD  snowblower.

Iowa Corn Predictions Lowered

Bloomberg is reporting that estimates for the production of the corn crop in Iowa have been reduced downwards.

This follows abnormally dry conditions that have led to a drought in many parts of Iowa, coupled with extremely hot and humid temperatures throughout the state.

Whilst conditions aren’t as severe as in other parts of the United States such as Texas and Oklahoma, they are worse than anticipated.

Earlier, in August this year, the US Department of Agriculture was estimating that corn production in Iowa would be on average 177 bushels per acre.

Whilst this was down on 182 bushels in 2009, it was seen as an improvement over the low figure of 165 bushels per acre from last year, that was in large part due to water soaked crops.

Private forecasters are now reducing that estimate down even further to about 164 bushels per acre.

India’s record cotton exports

The United States Department of Agriculture is estimating that India will export record amounts of cotton in 2011/2012, in part as a result of a less restrictive government policy.

The USDA believes that exports of Indian cotton may grow by as much as twenty one percent over the next year, estimating sales at over eight million bales, compared to just over six and a half million bales this current year.

One bale is roughly equvelant to one hundred and seventy kilograms.

Agriculture Job Creation Hopes

The importance of agriculture in creating and maintaining jobs is underlined in a report recently undertaken by the US department of Agriculture and Purdue university.

It estimates that over fifty thousand jobs will be create in the agricultural, food and natural resources sector by approx 2015.

Another recent report by the Battelle Institute found that agriculture and agbiosciences play a vital role in economic re-generation and in job creation in many areas of the United States, but especially in the north eastern area of the US.

The north central region of the United States which covers about twelve states, it is estimated that this part of the economy , i.e. the agriculture based economy. it is worth about one hundred and twenty five billion dollars, and employs just under two and a half million people.

Another study by Biocrossroads looked at Indiana, and estimate that the agricultural sector of the economy employs  just under a third of all people who work in the life sciences industry.

Its easy in the current economic climate just to think of current concerns, and important as they are, its also important to realize the long term economic and social benefits of a healthy and growing agricultural economy, both in the United States Mid West, and throughout North America as a whole.

US Farmers turn to the Internet

Associated Press is reporting that significant numbers of farmers are using on-line devices and the internet generally to manage whole aspects of their business in ways that were never imagined a few years, and gives a number of very specific and useful examples.

Farmers/ranchers are using on-line devices to improve productivity by speeding up their work flow and build and improve various agricultural farming techniques.

They are developing different ways to market and sell crops, be able to communicate better with both suppliers and new and potential customers,and to be able to comply with various regulatory requirements, both state and federal, in a more timely fashion.

According to the United States Department of Agriculture, over fifty percent of farms in America can access the internet, something that has always been a problem in rural areas.

AP describes a how a particular farmer, Dan Errotabe, who farms three and a  half thousand acres just south of Fresno uses the internet.

One of the main uses is collecting and distributing key documents to various government bodies, manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers and customers.

He and his staff also email and texts to keep in contact with pest control advisors, and get updates on key factors affecting his industry, such as the weather and various crop prices.

Price of Corn, Soybeans and Wheat to rise

Bloomberg is reporting that the price of corn and soybeans is rising steeply on the expectation that there will be a reduction in the overall yield of these crops, owing to dry hot weather in the US MIdWest .

The Professional Farmers Association of America recently undertook a four day study of fields in the midwest, and estimated that farmers in America will harvest just under twelve and a half billion bushels of corn this year, 2011.

This is less than was forecast by The US Department of Agriculture , by just over three percent.

According to Bloomberg, corn is the largest agricultural crop in the United States, valued at just over sixty six and a half billion dollars, followed by soybeans valued at just under thirty nine billion dollars.

Texas Agriculture’s Hay Hotline improved

Texas Agriculture run a Hay hotline, which acts as a sort of agency to bring together farmers/ranchers who need hay for their animals/livestock, and producers of hay who need  to sell it , or have surplus stocks.

Todd Staples,  the Texas Agriculture Commissioner, has recently announced change to the way the hotline works to hopefully make it more effective.

Some of the main changes are that the hotline now includes some information on prices for and sources of donated hay, and also new ways of linking up transportation services.

This will hopefully make it more efficient and easier for both ranchers and farmers to arrange delivery of hay purchased/donated.

Mahindra looks stable and steady amidst growth

Mahindra and Mahindra has recently posted a four per cent gain in its value, according to Business-Standard, and has made itself the most valuable company in India’s auto mobile sector.

According to the head of research at Pioneer Intermediaries, this is because Mahindra gets over sixty five percent of its sales from the rural /urban environment, and most of its sales are from the diesel sector.

Mahindra has expanded its product range to increase sales of its utility vehicles, which are diesel based, and this seems to be paying dividends in terms of  market share and profitability.

Analysts expect a strong demand for its tractors to continue as the need for them from rural areas will continue, as demand will remain constant.

British farmland prices rises to record level

Bloomberg is reporting that the value of farmland in the UK is rising to record levels as farmers increase production to take advantage of rising livestock and wheat prices.

 

This follows a report by The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors that says land prices have effectively doubled in the last five years, and that generally farmers are taking the view that they would rather keep land and increase production, rather tham simply sell land.

 

This means the value of the land will rise significantly as production increases and so therefore does the value of the land.

 

According to the UK Office for National Statistics, wheat prices in the UK have grown eleven percent in the last year and whilst meat prices have gone up by just over seven percent in the last year.

 

According to the RICS, arable land has gone up by just under five percent and pastures by just over four percent since the end of last year.

 

According to another report by Knight Frank, farmland in the UK  has gone up in value over three times in the last decade, which outperforms all other types of real estate in the UK.
