Fertilizers contain a range of essential components which can ensure the growing speed of plants, and it is particularly important for some infertile farmland where basic minerals are insufficient. The use of tractors has freed farmer workers from repetitive manual works such as ploughing, and farmers can manipulate machines to harvest thousands of hectares of farmland.
does this sound natural?
A: I would change, "has freed farmer workers from repetitive manual labour works such as ploughing..." to "The use of modern farm machinery has removed the necessity of performing arduous manual labours such as ploughing. Due to the drastically increased efficiency, thousands of hectares are now able to be planted and harvested every year on one farm alone."
