Abstract [First paragraphs]: Most agricultural tools, such as the plow, cultivator, harvester, seeder, and harrow, have histories stretching back thousands of years to the first agricultural revolution which occurred in Mesopotamia. Prototypes of these tools resembling todays implements were already in use at the beginning of the 18th century agricultural revolution in England.
