Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted on the performance evolution of the happy seeder and compared with the conventional method to know its effectiveness over the sowing technique. The performance evaluation was done from the basis of field capacity, field wheel slippage (%), efficiency, actual field capacity, fuel consumption yield (tones/ha) and cost of operation, the compression of the economics of operation of happy seeder with the conventional method of sowing wheat in the combined harvested paddy field, to prove the effectiveness. The result of the field test conducted showed that the working performance was proper at the operating speed was varying from 2.5 to 3.5 kmph to evaluate the variables. The field efficiency of happy seeder was 43.4% and 65.04% for seed drill at an operating speed of 3.5 kmph. The crop residue is heavy which was collected by sampling. The cost of operating per hectare by happy seeder was Rs. 2098.65 and cost of operation per hectare by seed drill + tillage operations were Rs.3106.38. Therefore, the cost of operational with happy economical as compared to seed drill by Rs.1008.38 per hectare. Nevertheless, the happy seeder is a unique technique for sowing in a combine-harvested paddy field.
