Abstract:

Procedures for the selection of optimal power source are time consuming and laborious even for a few sets of operations. Computer based interactive mathematical model are, therefore, required for finding solutions for the given farming system. The objective of the present work is to make Computer program in C language to select suitable tractor implement system for Paddy-Wheat cropping system. The cost components associated in the selection of field machinery were fixed, operating and timeliness cost. The program was based on the optimum size of the tractor and its matching implements. The program had the capabilities of computing the operational work hours, human and mechanical energy requirement, fixed, operating and timeliness cost for different operations of both crop. The computer program PMSM consisted of two sub programs, namely, tractor and machinery selection model (TMSM) and stationary power selection model (SPSM). The program was used to select combination of power sources and farm equipment suitable for different farm sizes.
