Pulverator and drill, 1925

Title

Pulverator and drill, 1925

Description

The operation of a pulverator and drill in an untilled field. The tractor pulling the machinery has unusually light and narrow steel wheels. The photograph is from the rear. A roadway fence line at the edge of the field is in the middle distance.
The history of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences begins with the founding of the Iowa Agricultural College and Model Farm in 1858, with classes beginning in 1869. As a land-grant institution, Iowa State was founded primarily to provide practical education in agriculture and the mechanic arts. Through the years, agriculture courses and short courses have focused on agricultural engineering, agronomy, animal husbandry, dairying, forestry, and horticulture. In the 21st century, the focus is on animal and the plant sciences, biotechnology life sciences, sustainability, and global development.
