Abstract:

In the present study, the performance evaluation of developed animal drawn single row maize ridger was observed. The field capacity (0.059 ha/h), field efficiency (74.74 %) with less plant damage (2.92%) and highest weeding efficiency (46.18%) and ridge dimensions bottom width, top width, ridge height (43.75cm, 12.75, 16cm ). The developed maize ridger was observed an average draft of about 69.81kg-f with an average power requirement 0.491 hp. Average speed of ridging operation was observed 1.74 km/h. The performance of maize ridger compared with Ridger plough, Tendua plough and MB Plough. The effective field capacity of developed maize ridger was found higher (0.0548 ha/h) followed by Tendua plough (0.0395 ha/h), ridger plough (0.0360 ha/h), MB plough (0.0158 ha/h).and volume of soil handled were found highest with ridger plough (492.38 cm3) followed by developed maize ridger (452.31cm3), MB plough (305.38 cm3) and minimum with Tendua plough (148.36 cm3) the total cost of operation was found minimum with developed maize ridger (1737.79 Rs/ha) followed by Tendua plough (2652.82 Rs/ha), Ridger plough (3000.00 Rs/ha) and maximum with MB plough (6440.00 Rs/ha).
