Abstract: In the agricultural field, seed planting operation is very time consuming in farming process. Also more labours are required for seed planting. Hence the total cost of the farming increases. The conventional seed sowing machines requires more seed and quantity of seed per unit area increases and this affects the yield. Also conventional seed sowing machines have constraints to use in the ridge and furrow method. But to reduce the risk of draught due to unpredictable rainy season and for irrigation purpose farmers accepts ridge and furrow method. Here in this study efforts are taken to design and develop a seed planting machine which is suitable for ridge and furrow method and also plant the seed at specific distance with specific quantity and reduce the requirement of seed per unit area.
Keywords: Seed Mechanization, Sowing, Planting, Ridge and furrow method.
