In early agricultural industries, various uncontrollable natural factors affect the type of agriculture implemented in a particular area. These include climate, soil, water availability, topography, distance from the market, convenient transportation, land cost and overall economic level. Climate, soil, water availability and topography vary greatly around the world. This change has brought extensive effects to agricultural production enterprises. Some areas tend to specialise in agriculture, while others are engaged in more diversified agriculture. With the introduction and adoption of new agricultural technologies, the importance of environmental factors in affecting agricultural production methods have gradually decreased. The continued growth of the world’s population has made the ability of agriculture continue to provide the food and fibre it needs to become critical.
In the economically developed capitalist countries, modern agriculture has performed well by using the knowledge and professionalism of the scientific and technological revolution and by introducing industrial methods. These efforts focused on the concentration of production units. The agricultural capital investment increment is inseparable from the steady growth of farm debt and the increasing dependence of farmers on banks. To tackle these potential challenges, large scale companies were created, making huge investment and input technological advance machinery into agricultural production.
The main agricultural products include crops used for human food and animal feed, and livestock products. Crops can be divided into 10 categories: cereal crops (rice, corn, wheat, syrup, oats, barley, flour for bread, baked products, cereals); fibre crops (cotton, fibres, seeds); trees and small fruits; root and tuber crops (potatoes, sweet potatoes); Oil crops (soybeans, flaxseeds); edible legumes (beans, peas, lima beans, peanuts); sugar crops (beets, sugar cane); nut crops; vegetables; and forage (hay and silage crops). Livestock products include cattle; dairy cattle; sheep; pigs; poultry (chiefly chickens and ducks); and horses.
With the invention of agricultural machinery with modern manufacturing facilities and technologies, the so-called mechanised agriculture became the mainstream in the agricultural industry. With the invention of machines, for instance, tractors, the harvesting processes speed up and boost the input of large scale agriculture machinery demands. Along with the tremendous increment in food processing output, massive cold storage facilities demand surged as the need to store these packed perishable foods in storage as well as during transportation. In terms of scientific approach to increase plant output, genetic engineering research and develop genetically modified crops. In major food-producing countries, the agricultural industry keeps on improving agricultural practices, including researching new species of plants, enhancing scientific approach to increase agricultural outputs.
Ferrari agricultural fans and agricultural blowers are widely used in fertilizer factories of the agriculture industry as they are necessary for the process optimization from harvesting, grain drying, and pneumatic conveying to dust collection, ventilation, agricultural fans for barns, and product packaging. We have a distinct solution to provide your exact needs to help your agricultural activities.
In food processing plants, the process needs the use of high-pressure fans for the pneumatic transport of flours, cereals and different kind of grains.
Another important application is that of the drying furnace (kiln), for the pasta or rice for example; in this case low-pressure centrifugal fans are used, completely made in stainless steel as they are in direct contact with the food processed.
