The comparative performance of inclined plate planter, raised bed planter & pneumatic planter was evaluated at half and full hopper fill using 2.5km/h & 3km/h speed alternatively for evaluation effects on miss index (MI), multiple index (MPI), feed index (QFI), cell fill percentage (CF) & standard deviation (SD) with the agronomical properties of seeds, design, and fabrication of experimental setup and development of seed uniformity calculator. For generation of database seed uniformity of planter, an experimental setup of planter is designed and fabricated at the College of Agricultural Engineering, Jabalpur. The laboratory and workshop facilities of the Institute were used for development and fabrication of the machine.

Keywords: Evaluation, Metering devices, Planters, Miss index, Feed index
