Agriculture Advertising Collectibles!

Your source for Advertising Agriculture Collectibles From Caterpillar to John Deere. A history of American Agriculture begins in the 17th and 18th century.

Oxen and horses were used for power with crude wooden plows. Spreading seeds was done by hand and so was cultivating with a hoe. Hay and grain cutting was done with a sickle and so was threshing.

By the mid 1800s McCormick reaper was patented, John Lane manufactured plows faced with steel saw blades and John Deere and Leonard Andrus begin manufacturing steel plows. It was at this time that the first practical threshing machine was patented.

Expanding markets for agricultural products and improved technology resulted in increases in farm production. By the late 1800s Cream separators, Horse-drawn combines and Steam tractors are tried out. The first gasoline tractor was built by inventor John Froelich.

In the early 1900s Agriculture becomes increasingly mechanized and commercialized. Big gas tractors introduced in areas of extensive farming and farm production gradually grows from expanded use of mechanized power. In the 1930s all purpose, rubber-tired tractors with complementary implements were popular. In the 1950s the number of tractors on farms exceeds the number horses and mules for the first time. By 2000 one American farmer supplies 100 plus persons with all the basic food supplies.
