Abstract:

Design, development and evaluation of zero-till-slit seed drill were carried out in rice-wheat crop rotation. The field performance of the zero-till-slit seed drill was evaluated and compared to the combined tillage and seeding equipment, zero-till seed drill, roto-till seed drill, strip-till seed drill and improved conventional seed drill, The field experiment was carried out following the statistically designed slit drill was with split-split-split plot design. The field performance has revealed that the rotary slit cutters designed and used in the developed zero-till-slit seed drill was functioning effectively for opening narrow slits on untilled plot will 50% standing stubbles and loose straw was able to place seeds precisely untitled straw fields. The results indicated that the zero-till-slit seed drill showed higher field capacity higher, field efficiency, lower fuel consumption, lower percentage of wheel slip and lower cone index compared to the combined tillage and seeding equipment tested in the study. The results have further revealed higher plant emergence, higher plant population at higher rice yields by use of zero-till-slit seed drill compared to the combined tillage and seeding equipment tested in the study.
