Farm mechanization is the only way out for all the issues plaguing agricultural operations. Agriculturists should take to farm mechanization technique to enhance both productivity and profitability. A huge investment on agricultural labour and a sharp fall in labour efficiency posed a serious threat to crop management techniques. The mission of many government and private organizations is to make agricultural operations less drudgerious by introducing various tools, implements and machineries and hence to increase the farm mechanization index. These efforts involve making each and every term involved technically sound. Prerequisites for this is explaining the terms in understandable in scientific language and in order to lay the strong foundation of basic terms in farm machinery and power, the book “Farm Machinery and Power: Glossary” is compiled so that the reader should be able to understand and comprehend it better. This book will be very basic requirement for the students, academicians and persons engaged in farm mechanization Those who enter and work in this field, go with some basic knowledge to implement it with confidence and efficiency.
