Abstract:

Availability of draft requirement data of primary and secondary tillage implement is necessary to implement selection, tractor- implement matching and determination of fuel consumption for different tillage systems. In this research, pull type load cell was along with an auxiliary tractor was used to determine the draft requirement of selected tillage implement. It was observed that the draft requirement of Mb plough was maximum at 619 kgf compared to disc plough, disc harrow and cultivator. The draft effecting soil parameters were also determined. The average value moisture content, bulk density and cone index were found to 8.54%, 1.91g/cc and 1.45MPa.


Keywords: Tillage, Cone index, Bulk density, Draft
