Abstract:

The performance of water application attachment on seed drill was evaluated at dryland research farm area of CCS Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar, Haryana, in kharif, 2012 and compared to conventional method. Due to dependency on rains the sowing is often delayed in dryland area which substantially reduces the yield of crop upto 35 %. The effective field capacity of water application attachment on seed drill was observed 0.47 ha h-1 at average operating speed of 3.6 km hr-1. The field efficiency calculated was 73%. The water application rate of water application attachment on seed drill was fixed at 3000 l ha-1. The machine will help in timely sowing of crop in dry land area. Seed emergence per cent in water application attachment on seed drill was 88 % and yield obtained was 6.1 qha-1
