Tractor Drawn Levelling in Dry land
Sri.Kumar is a farmer owning 4 acres of land. He is cultivating millets and pulses. Farmers in this area will start sowing after ploughing the land followed by levelling the field by using wooden leveller. The wooden leveller was a bullock drawn model, which requires 1 person to stand above the leveller for giving grip and sufficient weight for pressing the soil. This will make the levelling process very cumbersome. Sri. Kumar has designed iron leveller by using old wheel axil and fitted with 2-inch pipe on either side. The cost of making this iron leveller varies from Rs.200-400. By seeing this usefulness of this model 20 farmers have immediately adopted this technology.
