Abstract:

A study was conducted for performance evaluation of prototype ride on type paddy weeder in wetland field, Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbatore, India. The experimental site is geographically situated at 11o North latitude and 77o East longitude and at an altitude of 427 m above MSL.Weed is inevitable part of farming. SRI system of rice cultivation naturally weed growth is more in the fields because there is no stagnated water. So, it is very necessary to use proper weeding implements to reduce drudgery and cost of cultivation. Performance evaluation of prototype ride on type paddy weeder was done in the paddy field. In field evaluation the of developed ride on type paddy weeder the following evaluated parameters were wheel slip 15%, effective field capacity 0.03004 hah-1, theoretical field capacity 0.0375 ha h-1, field efficiency 80.35 %, plant damage 3.33% and weeding efficiency 84.04% and fuel consumption of the weeder was 0.6 lit h-1.
