Necessity is the mother of invention. And, because of the myriad situations and circumstances in which they may find themselves every day on the farm, farmers are some of the best inventors in the world. Whether it's a small add-on to an existing tool or implement, or a major overhaul or new tool for an entirely different job, Successful Farming and Agriculture.com have featured farmers' inventions for generations. Check out some of the latest inventions and improvements for your work All Around the Farm.
