A rotary plough is an agricultural implement, popularly used to reduce the amount of time and labour spent in soil preparation. The objective of this study was to evaluate the performance evaluation of vertical rotary plough on fallow and cultivated land. The observed experimental are: moisture content of soil, bulk density of soil, cone index, soil mean weight diameter, wheel sleep, theoretical field capacity, effective field capacity, field efficiency, fuel consumption and weeding efficiency. Result were: soil moisture content 8.19% and 11.74%, bulk density of soil 1.99 gm/cm3 and 1.90 gm/cm3, cone index 0.236 kg/cm2 and 0.144 kg/cm2, soil mean weight diameters 4.17 mm and 3.86 mm, fuel consumption 6.30 l/hr and 5.76 l/hr, field capacities 0.17 ha/hr and 0.23 ha/hr and field efficiency 71.53% and 82.14% in case of fallow land and cultivated land respectively. It shows that the time required for rotary plough operation in fallow land was more than the time required for the cultivated land.


Keywords :

Vertical rotary plough; tillage; tillage parameter; field efficiency; fuel consumption.
