Stage of Developments
Complete working machine is developed and the inventor is looking for investment for large scale manufacturing and marketing.
Plowing and cultivating machinery is expected to be the fastest growing product type through 2016, expanding 9.1 percent per year to $10.7 billion as farmers in developing nations purchase larger and more complex tilling equipment to increase the productivity of their land. Aftermarket parts and attachments demand is projected to increase at the slowest rate, climbing 5.5 percent per year to $27.8 billion in 2016 as the durability of new machinery continues to improve, thus limiting repair and maintenance spending.
Therefore, the present machine has wide scope of commercialization worldwide, specially benefitting small farm owners.
