Abstract:

The experiment was aimed to develop an indoor soil bin for testing a furrow opener under simulated condition in BRSM College of Agricultural Engineering and Technology, Mungeli, Chhattisgarh, India. The seedbed for testing furrow openers was prepared by hammering and compactor tool. Two types of sliding furrow openers are selected for study are inverted ‘T’ and shovel type furrow opener in soil bin. The forward speed of operation was measured 1.8 kmph. Moisture content and bulk density of soil bed was measured 21.54% and 1.82g/cm3. Draft was found to be 22 kgf and 37 kgf at the depth of 75 and 100 mm for inverted ‘T’ type furrow opener. In case of shovel type furrow opener it observed 18 kgf and 35 kgf at 75 and 100 mm depth. The soil disturbance by inverted ‘T’ type furrow opener was observed 168 mm and 230 mm at operational depth of 75 and 100 mm. Whereas in case of shovel type furrow opener it was observed to be 156 and 150mm at 75 mm and 100mm depth respectively.
