A unit for the application of farmyard manure (FYM) in the field with planting of seeds was designed and developed. The developed applicator cum planter had a FYM hopper capacity of 302 kg and was pulled by 50 H.P. tractor. Tractor drawn FYM applicator cum planter had nine tyne shovel type furrow opener to place the FYM in band form. Inverted 'T' type furrow opener was used to place the seeds with individual seed box for each furrow opener. Inclined metering plate was used to meter the seeds. Grain yield was maximum at 100 per cent RDN through the applicator with 40.51 q/ha followed by 75 per cent RDN through applicator and 100 per cent RDN through manual broadcasting with 38.49 q/ha and 33.51 q/ha, respectively. Whereas lowest grain yield 18.41 q/ha was noted under control treatment. From the study it was concluded that the plant growth parameters and yield attributes were affected by different method of FYM application followed by different dose of nitrogen.
