Abstract:

Farm mechanization is the application of engineering technology in agricultural operations to do a job in a better way to improve productivity. This includes development, application and management of all mechanical aids for field production, water control, material handling, storing and processing. Tractor operated seed ferti drill-cum-weedicide applicator was developed and evaluated techno-economic feasibility in the field at Central Demonstration Farm, Wani-Rambhapur Dr. PDKV Akola. During sowing season of the crop, there is an acute shortage of labour, which causes delay in sowing of crop which ultimately results in a reduction of yield. Sowing or drilling the seed is one of the important operations for the crop. After sowing of the seed in field simultaneously weed also grow. Weeds are the most serious problem to the farmers which create obstruction for crop growth and compete with the crop. Application of the weedicide simultaneously along with sowing will minimize the problem and it will save complete operation of spraying weedicide.
