Abstract:

The mini-tractor operated drip lateral installer and retriever was fabricated at department of farm machinery and power engineering, CAET, Junagadh agricultural university, Junagadh. A drip line installer and retriever were developed for small fields. One operator can install drip line on or just beneath the soil surface to precisely irrigate crops after planting and retrieve the drip line after irrigation is no longer needed for the season. The developed implement was operated by the mini-tractor using three-point hitch, it performs both the operations of installation and retrieval of drip line. The installer and retriever mainly consists of a main frame, drip line spool as well as spool supporting frame, press wheel, guiding wheel & shaft, transportation wheel, depth adjust mental wheel, chain & sprocket mechanism, pedestal block bearing, power transmission assembly were developed.
