Abstract:

Sowing of seeds with seed drill at proper seed rate, depth and covering them with soil is very important. This allows plants to get sufficient sunlight and nutrients from the soil and also saves them from being eaten by birds or being dried up due to exposure to sun. Meanwhile it ensures improved ratio of crop yield with saving in time and labour. Small land holding in Indian farms limits farm mechanization on Indian farms. Conventional methods of seeding will results in low seed placements, less area covered per unit time, physical health issue like back ache etc. Keeping all in view a manually operated seed drill for mustard seeds was developed specially for small and marginal farmers with 1-1.5 kg seed box capacity and seed drill weight of 9-10 kg. The developed seed drill is useful for the small and marginal farmers who cannot afford heavy machinery.
