Well to start with the obvious. If it is a kerosene tractor, you must start on gasoline (petrol) and you must be certain that kerosene has not mixed with the gasoline, otherwise it will NOT start. If that is OK, check you have fuel at the carburetor. Kero tractors have a drain cock and gasoline tractors have a plug. Be sure the fuel strainer under the large fuel tank is clean and that the fuel is clean and fresh too.

When I start my tractor I usually give it one crank with no choke at all and then the second with full choke. It usually fires on the second go and I quickly reduce the choke to where the tractor runs evenly. If you over-choke the motor, you will see fuel coming out the bottom of the carburetor. Turn off the fuel tap at the tank and then start the tractor. As soon as the motor is running, turn the tap on. You have plenty of time to do this before the carburetor and fuel line empty.

DO NOT stand beside the tractor to operate the starter button if you have electric start. It is a very good way to injure or kill yourself if the tractor is in gear. If you still cannot start the engine, it's time to check for other problems, like spark and timing or sticky valves.
