TL;DR: In this paper , a sowing machine based on hydraulic principle named as Hydraulic Seed Sowing Machine (HSSM) has been designed and manufactured for a permanent raised bed of 100 cm width.
Abstract: This paper is bases on the design and manufacturing of the sowing machine based on hydraulic principle named as ‘Hydraulic Seed Sowing Machine’. The machine is very efficient in working and will be able to easily sow the seeds like (bajra, rice, Val, gram, groundnut, pea, maize, groundnut, etc.). The machine is following the conditions such as – It operates on a permanent raised bed of 100 cm width which can sow seeds with fertilizer in 5 rows at 25 cm approximately apart. Seeds - bajra, rice, Val, gram, groundnut, pea, maize, groundnut, etc. Mechanism is preferably impact dibber and it make very thin slit of max depth of 30-40 cm. It covers the seeds after sowing and be operated by 1-2 people either 1 hp power motor or manually and sow 0.6 to 1 ha in approximately 6 hours. Hydraulic Seed Sowing Machine is Potential of being self-driven to get higher speed
