Abstract:

A combination tillage implement operated with mini tractor was developed. The implement was evaluated for width of operation, depth of cut, operating speed, wheel slip, field capacity, field efficiency and fuel consumption, quantity and quality of work done by the implement which includes soil inversion, soil pulverization and volume of soil handled per unit area and also the economics of operation were calculated. The developed IP-DH implement can be operated up to depth of 16.88cm and width of 1.056m at an operating speed of 2.16 km/h. The theoretical field capacity and actual field capacity of IP-DH implement were found to be 0.228 ha/h and 0.161ha/h which gives an efficiency of 70.6%. The tillage time that can be saved up to 53.62%. The fuel consumption was found to be 1.75.l/h for IP-DH implement and fuel can be saved up to 53%. The Mean Mass Diameter (MMD) of soil clods after the passage of IP-DH implement was found to be 10.26 mm and the soil inversion was found to be 93.9%. The volume of soil handled per unit area was 271.76 m3/h. The cost of operation was Rs.322 /h and save of 53% as compared to conventional tillage implement.
