Abstract:

India is an agricultural country where about 87% of farmers fall under small and marginal farmers. The basic requirements for small scale cropping machines are they should be suitable for small farms, simple in design and technology and versatile for use in different farm operations. A pull type planter was developed with inclined plate metering mechanisms for maize, red gram and castor crops to reduce seed damage. The size of seed hopper is 3 kg. Standard tine type furrow opener was used and bevel gears were used for power transmission from drive wheel. Cost of planter was Rs. 4150 with an operating cost of Rs. 36.1 per hour. The planter was a useful implement for small farmers for early sowing of seeds who cannot afford large machinery.
