In agriculture profession high output is demanded with limited resources and machines are the costlier investment to the agriculture for a marginal and poor farmer. The accuracy and precision of an agricultural machine can be increased using the electronics and computing systems however it increases the cost of the machines. In spite of costlier investments, many researchers have been conducted the study on mechatronics application in precise sowing operation in recent years. Mechanical planters have problems of ground wheel skidding and vibration in the mechanical transmission that affect the hill to hill spacing. From the review, it was concluded that the mechatronic driving system performed better than mechanical driving system in both tilled and non-tilled fields. The increase in uniformity of seed placement was also reported. Thus, mechatronics based seed placement technique was found a better way to achieve accurate seed spacing with higher efficiency in planting. This paper reviews on the mechatronics and its application in precision planting.
