Abstract


Self-propelled rice transplanter was evaluated under different puddling has been conducted Agricultural Research Station, Gangavati during 2014-15. KUBOTA Model NSPU-68C (6 rows) transplanter was used in an experiment. This transplanter (Kubato Model) was in view to decrease the cost operation and it is used for transplanting purpose. The number of floating hills increased with an increasing level of puddling. The numbers of buried hills were reduced significantly with an increase in the sedimentation period as well as the both No. of passes. The field efficiency, field capacity, and fuel consumption of the transplanter were, 62.96 %, 0.54 ha/h and 4.29 l/h, respectively. The cost of operation of tractor operated disc puddler, rotovator and rotomixuer was 484 Rs/h, 538 Rs/h, 551 Rs/h and cost of operation of transplanter is 965 Rs/h. Compared to manual transplanting of paddy the machine was found to be farmer friendly and feasible in terms of time, money and labour requirement.

Keywords
