Abstract: The main objective of the project is development and fabrication of a multipurpose agricultural tiller which will perform a wide range of operations such as rotary, ploughing, seeding, pesticide spraying, harvesting, weeding at a reasonable cost to overcome the challenges faced by the farmer. The multipurpose agricultural tiller has been fabricated on a rigid chassis frame which holds a universal shaft on which rotary and wheels can be mounted. This universal shaft derives 8 BHP of power from a 4-Stroke IC engine placed firmly on the chassis frame. The mechanism used is such that the same engine drives the wheels, rotavator, harvester, pesticide sprayer, seeder, leaver, plough and trolley. The reciprocating motion provided to the harvester cuts the crop precisely, consuming less time as compared to conventional techniques of harvesting. A power sprayer is used which will facilitate spraying of pesticide at different heights of crop cultivation. A multi-way adjustable plough is also used whose position can be adjusted on a slide through frame according to the requirement of the farmer. A multi variety seeding operation is also setup. Multipurpose agricultural tiller can be easily afforded by average and marginal class of farmers.
