Tests on soil tillage machinery aim at studying the behaviour of the machines from the point of view of their dynamic and energetic performances and of the quality of work. If correctly obtained, the results of the tests provide a significant contribution to knowledge of the machines: it is possible to evaluate prototypes and modifications to existing machines; the performances of different machines can be compared; it is possible to determine the best coupling between operating machine and tractor in order to ensure quality of work and energy saving. The testing should represent an instrument that the manufacturers can use for development of their products and for improvement of their quality. A standardized testing, systematically applied in order to certificate machine performances, should also represent a warranty for the users/farmers that have to choose a machine
