Abstract:
Tractor drawn FYM applicator cum planter was designed in Solid-works and fabricated at the National Agro Manufacturing Company, Ludhiyana and modified on the basis of laboratory test/field test in the workshop of Department of FMPE, SVCAET&RS, FAE, IGKV, Raipur. In the first phase a frame for FYM hopper was fabricated according to giving the desired capacity of FYM hopper. Nine orifice openings for FYM delivery was provided at bottom surface of hopper. A counter shaft was fixed which takes drive from ground wheel and rotates agitator. An agitator type feeding mechanism for FYM and inclined metering unit for seeds was provided. The FYM metering mechanism has speed reduction from main axle shaft to agitator shaft was 1:0.6 ratio. The FYM agitating shaft had 28, 33 and 49 RPM at tractor forward speed of 2, 4 and 6 km/h, respectively. These speeds were sufficient to break the clod of FYM.
