Agricultural Mechanization (AM) was obtained from contribution of agriculture and 20th century technology for providing the world highly increasing population needs for food and fiber. In this study, Iran wheat cultivation mechanization status and obstacles were considered and by comparing with other countries experiences, some remedies presented. However, AM in Iran has aged for more than 80 years, it has not achieved to its desired position. From this study, wheat cultivation Mechanization Level (M L) and available power per hectare estimated 84% and 1.17 (hp/ha), respectively. For full mechanized wheat cultivation (ML = 100%), by assuming available power per hectare of 1.17 (hp/ha), more 1244387 (hp) power is needed.
