Tractors in Turkey.

Before the war the only tractors used in Turkey came from Germany, and were propelled by steam. Since 1918, however, petrol and kerosene tractors of the light wheel type have become fairly popular. It is rather doubtful, however, whether this type is best suited to local conditions, for Turkish soil is; for the most part, very heavy. Machines are at present chiefly used for field and haulage work, and have mainly come from America, although the Fiat presents seine competition.
