Abstract:
Agriculture is the backbone of Indian economy. About 50 percent of population is employed in agriculture sector contributing about 18 percent of country’s GDP. The loss due to attack by pests and insects in Indian scenario is 15 to 20 percent hence proper mechanization of agricultural operations is a necessity for minimizing the losses of yield. For the efficient use of pesticides and fertilizer is must in order to reduce the cost of farming. Indian farmers are still inclined to theoretical method of pesticides spraying, but this leads to more wastage of pesticides and less yield. The farming area is dealing with issues with limit issues, contracting incomes, and work deficiencies and expanding customer requests. Present study results revealed that total cost of operation for one hectare by hand operated, ground wheel operated sprayer and battery operated boom sprayer were found as Rs. 725, Rs. 236.83 and Rs. 213.88 per hectare, respectively.
