Local autonomous power supply systems are generally limited to stationary applications which, although of vital importance to farm mechanization,

 still represent a considerably smaller fraction of total energy than that used in mobile mechanization systems powered by tractors and other engine-driven vehicular equipment.

In the early 19th century, animals were the chief source of power in farming. Later in the century, steam power gained in importance.

During World War I gasoline- (petrol-) powered tractors became common, and diesel engines later became prevalent.

In the developed countries, the number of farm workers has steadily declined in the 20th century, while farm production has increased because of the use of machinery.

The training of operatives involves a partnership between equipment users, equipment suppliers, maintenance and repair services, extension services (where available), research and educational institutions, and the communications media (farming press, radio, TV, Internet). Farm relief services are an integral part of a backup system where illness or other difficulties prevent a farmer from operating equipment effectively.
