Abstract:

The bullocks and buffaloes are the main stay of farm power in India and they still command over 60% of the total cultivable land. About 90% of the tillage operation in India is still carried out by the draught animals. The study was conducted on CIAE made animal drawn three row inclined plate planter at OUAT field. In this study the performance and cost-economics were compared for maize seed. During the study it was found that the mean draft requirement measured during experiment was 384.17 N with an average power output of 0.158 kW/ h. The average speed of operation of the planter was found to be 1.46 km/h. The average seed to seed distance was 30 cm and average row to row distance is 45 cm. The depth of seed placement was 6 cm and actual seed rate observed was 13.2 kg/ha. The theoretical field capacity was 0.127 ha/hr. The field efficiency calculated was 70.5 %. The mean draft measured during experiment was observed to be 351.83N. The average speed of operation behind the plough was 1.54 km/h. The average seed to seed distance was 27.5 cm and average row to row distance is 41cm. The average depth of seed placement was 8 cm and actual seed rate observed was 22.5 kg/ ha. The theoretical field capacity was found to be 0.075 ha/hr. The field efficiency was calculated to be 59 %. It was found that cost of sowing with three row inclined plate planter was Rs30.00/ h and sowing behind the plough was Rs. 50.00/ h.
