Abstract:

Proper matching of implements with any type of tractor and the performance evaluation with its combination is very much important to minimize the expenditure in farming operations. An improper matching of tractor-implement combination produced an under loading of engine and hence higher operating costs and poor efficiency. For small farm holding, large tractors are not economical for cutting of stubbles of crops due to excessive operation cost. The main disadvantage of using large tractor is excessive waste of power and high fuel consumption. With small size tractor, it is necessary to select an implement size that is convenient to use or adequate for the operation to be done. Hence, to obtain a suitable implement according to tractor horsepower, implement size plays an important role. At present, in India, removal of plant stubbles is carried out by burning of huge quantity of stalks which causes air pollution, degradation of soil which directly or indirectly influence on human, animal and plant life. In order to assess the possibility of mechanization of cutting operation, it is necessary to develop small tractor operated rotoslasher to overcome the above problems and enhance the timeliness of operation.
