These pictures portray how farmers harvest and threshold their crops.

The very accustomed way of harvesting/thresholding/separating crop yields from its grain is:

1. through using oxen, cattle, or some other rudimentary techniques

2. through using Combine Harvesters, which is highly mechanized and modernized.

From my field experience, I discovered the third and unusual technique whereby farmers use tractors not combine harvesters for the indicated purpose. 

The following video clip shows the third technique I mentioned above.
