Some farmers have lots of crops. They plant them in rows. Huge machines help them spray the crops with treatments or water. This helps them finish their jobs in less time.

Farmers can hook up different machines to their tractors. This tractor is pulling along a planter. As the farmer drives through the field, the planter drops seeds onto the ground. A planter can plant up to 48 rows of seeds at once. This tool helps farmers plant their crops quickly.
