Abstract:

A five row animal drawn multi-crop planter was developed at the SV College of Agricultural Engineering and Technology, IGKV, Raipur and it was evaluated for its performance by conducting lab tests and field trials. The tests comprised of the determination of average weight of seeds discharged, percentage damage of seeds, calibration of a planter, field performance studies and average depth of placement of seeds. The mean field capacity and field efficiency was found to be 0.22 ha/h and 79.78% respectively. The speed of operation was 1.75 km/h and the average draft required to pull the multi-crop planter was 43.21 kgf. The average depth of seed placement was observed to be 40mm. The average plant population was found to be 17, 16, 14, 14 and 12 plants within rows of 2 m length for wheat, chick pea, green gram, pigeon pea and ground nut, respectively. The cost of operation was found to be Rs 321.78 per ha.
