Abstract:

India uses only 10% agricultural equipment’s as conducted survey in Year 2012. Now a day’s India has second rank worldwide in farm output. Agriculture like forestry and fishers accounted for 13.7GDP (Gross Domestic Product) in 2013, about 50% of the total man power. Precision sowing has been a major thrust of agricultural engineering research for many years; however, most of the research and development work has dealt with seeders for agronomic crops. A seeder should place a seed in an environment in which the seed will reliably germinate and emerge. The individual components were made and assembled the vacuum seeder to meet the demand of farmers to get healthy seedlings in the nurseries with low cost for sowing of seeds in the tray of 50 cells at a time and it will take around 0.5 min but manual method required around 3.0 min to sow the seeds in the same tray. We can save 90% of labour by using vacuum seeder in the nurseries for sowing the seeds in the tray and 70% of cost can save by using the same machine. The vacuum seeder is having the facility to sow the two trays at a time but two persons are required.
