Author(s):

Abstract:
Tillage practices affect the physical properties of soil that are crucial for better crop production. The study was carried out to compare the efficiency of some tillage implements and their effect on some soil physical properties. The tillage implements included are tractor drawn MB plough (T1), tractor drawn cultivator (T2) was selected as front passive tool and tractor drawn cultivator (T3) and disc harrow (T4). The soil properties viz., soil pulverization, soil Cone Index and soil bulk density were determined after the tillage practices. However, the efficiency of tillage operation including operating speed and operating depth were taken during the tillage operation. The comparative analysis showed that the T1 was better in good pulverization, cone Index and reducing mean soil bulk density among selected tillage implements.
