A manually operated multi crop inclined plate planter was designed and its performance evaluated for planting of Maize, Pigeon pea, Bengal gram, Green gram. Power was transmitted from the drive wheel to metering mechanism through chain and multi sprockets and bevel gears. Inclined plate type metering mechanism was used in the planter. Seeds were placed in the furrows at desired depth and seed to seed spacing through adjustable system. The average Depth of Maize, Pigeon Pea, Bengal gram and Green gram was 4.6, 3.83, 4.17 and 4.21 cm and seed to seed spacing was 22.7, 19.2, 12.6 and 11.47 cm respectively. the multi crop planter at an average forward speed of 2.7km.h-1 for planting Maize, Pigeon Pea, Bengal gram and Green gram and field efficiency for Maize, Pigeon Pea, Bengal gram. The handle was designed adjustable for the different height of person women and men which can adjust according to own height which reduced drudgery. The adjustable handle helps the operator to push the planter at the time of operation. The adjustable handle length was a 148cm and 40cm of mild steel round bar was bolted inside of the hallow M.S pipe. The cost of the manually operated multi crop planter was approximately rupees 4460 this is the within buying capacity of the formers of the India.
