The Ford Tractors division in Europe of the Ford Motor Company was based at Basildon in Essex, England . The Division grew out of Ford's plans to be a global player in the tractor market that originally started in the 1920 with the creation of the Fordson Company by Henry Ford as a separate company after Ford senior management did not see the viability of tractor production, as well as cars.

The Tractors operation was later sold off to Fiat as New Holland after Ford management decided in the 1980s to invest in the Car division and dropped expansion plans in other sectors after profits and market share fell as the Japanese car industry grew.

Henry Ford decided that his mass production techniques, could be applied to tractor building to meet the needs of feeding the population using small light tractors rather than the early big heavy designs derived from steam tractors. But the board of directors did not agree and so he set up his own operation under the Fordson brand .

Ford was a major manufacturer or farm tractors for much of the 20th Century. The Ford brand was first used on tractors in 1939 with the introduction of the 9N, although the Fordson brand had already been in use for 20 years. The European Fordson brand and US Ford brand were consolidated in 1964 with the creation of a global tractor line. Ford purchased New Holland in 1985, creating the Ford-New Holland line. Ford's farm equipment group was sold to Fiat in 1990, which began phasing out the Ford name.
