Abstract:

Application of fertilizers plays a vital role in crop production system. The basic performance parameter for a fertilizer distributor was uniformity of distribution over a wide range of conditions. In India traditionally manure was distributed with the help of fork and other mechanical device which was very tedious and slow process. The study of the previous work done on fertilizer applicators shows that manually operated, animal drawn and tractor drawn spreader has been developed in India to achieve uniformity in application with minimum time and drudgery of labor. Some of those studies have been reviewed in this study.
