Abstract:
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the performance of a tractor-drawn FYM cum seed drill for planting mung bean crops. On vertisol soil, the field tests were conducted. T1-100 per cent RDN through manual broadcasting of seeds and FYM, T2-100 per cent RDN using FYM applicator cum seeed drill, were the treatments. FYM applicator cum seed drill has the seed rate of 24.18 kg/ha. With a seed yield of 8.5 q/ha, mung bean sowing by tractor-drawn FYM applicator with 100 per cent RDN performed better than the broadcasting approach. Mung bean plants sown using tractor-drawn FYM applicator cum seed produced increased yields, plant height, population, and pods per plant. The machine's operation cost was found to be Rs. 1,294 per hectare. Farmers were using traditional methods to apply FYM. This strategy is ineffective for distributing FYM evenly in the field. A tractor-drawn FYM applicator cum seed drill can apply FYM and seeds at the same time.
