Abstract

A shortage of manpower during World War II and in the immediate years following, the war forced the American farmer into an era of mechanized agriculture. His investment in machinery tripled. With this evolution in farming additional training became necessary for the successful operation, care, and maintenance of his machinery. The farmer became, through no choice of his own, a mechanic. Many times, the success or failure of his farming enterprises was a direct result or how well he operated his costly farm machinery.
