The basic objective of showing operation is to put the seed and fertilizer in rows at desired depth and seed to seed spacing, cover the seeds with soil and provide proper compaction over the seed. The recommended row to row spacing, seed rate, seed to seed spacing and depth of seed placement vary from crop to crop and for different agro-climatic conditions to achieve optimum yields. The comparison between the traditional sowing method and the new proposed machine which can perform a number of

As day by day the labor availability becomes the great concern for the farmers and labor cost is more, this machine reduces the efforts and total cost of sowing the seeds and fertilizer placement meet the demands farmer have to use new techniques in cropping to increase the yield. The requirements of small scale sowing machines are, they should be simple in design, affordable for small scale peasant farmers, easy maintenance for effective handling by unskilled farmers. In this project the attempt has been made for reduction in cost of machine and developing the multifunctional sowing machine which can perform simultaneous operations.
