The Iowa harvest has long been powered by the agricultural giant that manufactures its farm equipment there: John Deere. Green and yellow machines can be seen around the state in the fields and the legacy that the company has left is seen in the success of the industry, according to the Ames Tribune.

The John Deere harvester combines have been a staple in the Iowa agricultural industry for a long time, as since 1954 the machine was made by the company to harvest corn. This was a difficult task, due to the fact that the ear being separated from the stalk was something that previous models couldn't master, the news source reported.

According to the Tribune, these machines were manufactured with an increasing amount of technology and innovation after the 1954 models, and programs were created to breed the next group of engineers at schools like Iowa State University.

The College of Engineering at Iowa State University has specific programs like Advanced Machine Engine Manufacturing Systems to help keep innovation in the field and to help individuals fill the vital jobs that exist at companies like John Deere, according to the ISU website.
