About the Practice
Problem Statement:

sowing of garlic (Allium sativum)


Farmers of Junagadh district are sowing garlic (<i>Allium sativum</i>) at a distance of 4.5 inches. It is not possible to sow at such a short distance with normal sowing instruments. In the normal sowing instrument, distance between two jaw is 9 inches, so to sow the seed at 4.5 inches, the farmer has to sow 1st normally and then again sow the seed in between two already sown rows to maintain the distance of 4.5 inches. But in second sowing the bullock pulling the sowing implement may walk on the 1st sown rows and damage the seed. To overcome this problem, the old sowing implement is modified and a third jaw is added to draw a third line in the middle of external two rows. This helps to complete sowing in just one time and there is no damage to the other rows. Thus it saves time and other sown lines too.
