In Germany the size of the tractors depended not only on the landscape (flat, wide country in the North, hills and mountains in the the middle and the South) or the agriculture (potatoes, cereals, sugar beets in the North, fruits, wine and dairy in the South), but also on historical, political and even religious reasons.

In the East, especially the North-East there were since decades squires with large properties and farm labourers, where otherwise there were free farmers. These Eastern squires were disposessed after 1945 by the Russians and the DDR-regime and the farms were used as cooperatives, "LPG".

About the religious reasons: in the Catholic regions (middle and South) there was the division of the estate, when the old farmer died. So the estate bacame smaller and smaller with every generation. The Protestantic (North and East) always the oldest son inherited the property, so its size stayed (if everything went well with the siblings).
