Abstract:
Paddy is one of the important cereals in Maharashtra. The mostly rice growing region in Maharashtra is at most all the districts of Konkan region and Bhandara, Gondia, Chandrapur and Gadchiroli and part of Nagpur district in Vidarbha. In Eastern Vidharbha region, bunds of paddy field are used for Tur (cajanus cajan) cultivation and therefore bunds are generally large in size, that’s why it is uneconomical and time consuming to make that much large size bund year by year. Also, difficult to trimming and plastering the bund by using trimming and plastering machine. A new concept is proposed for a bund cutting, as a direct attachment to the tractor. A cutting disc which is cut the bund G.I. sheet which has a curve along its length at the top of cutting mechanism has been suggest to convey mud towards top of the cutting portion of bund the following ability of cutting soil is supposed to be utilized in this new concept. Mechanizing the bund cutting process would be an entirely a new innovative concept in India and lot of investigation are needed during the testing. Keeping the above point in view the present investigation could be very helpful for farmer to save time, energy and make the work easy.
