Abstract:

In India, area under cultivation is about 159.7 million ha. 68% of the total net sown area comes under dry land cultivation, spread over 177 districts. As farmers turn increasingly to multiple cropping systems to boost their incomes and meet increased demand for their produce, the time available for seedbed preparation has decreased considerably. This can be met by using rotary plough. The rotary plough was evaluated at Ramkur village and College of Agricultural Engineering, Bapatla for its field capacity, field efficiency and fuel consumption in two different soils i.e., black soil and sandy soil. Parameters such as width of cut, depth of cut, field capacity, field efficiency and fuel consumption before and after ploughing were determined. The result of the field experiments showed that the effective field capacity of the implement in black and sandy soil as 0.18 ha/h and 0.28 ha/h and the theoretical field capacity of black and sandy soil as 0.30 ha/h and 0.375 ha/h respectively. Hence it may be concluded that this implement gives a field efficiency of 60.20% and 74.68% in black and sandy soil respectively.


Keywords: Theoretical field capacity, Actual field capacity, Field efficiency.
