Abstract:
Organic farming is adopted in recent days by the farmers. The farmyard manure is the major alternatives for organic farming with higher plant nutrients. However application of farmyard manure is not easy due to their variable physical and frictional properties. Therefore, it is need of today to study the physical and frictional properties of farmyard manure to design the FYM application and handling machine. A study was carried out to determine the physical and frictional characteristics of farmyard manure at laboratory of SVCAET&RS, FAE, IGKV, Raipur. The physical and frictional properties of FYM were determined at different depth of manure pit viz. 0-15, 15-30, 30-45, 45-60, 60-75 and 75-90 cm. The average moisture content, bulk density, dry matter content, angle of repose and angle of friction of FYM at different depth of manure pit were 28.97 per cent db, 421.21 kg/m3, 71.03 per cent, 35˚ and 34˚, respectively.
