It is made of PP CP(Polypropylene Co-Polymer). The seed drums are designed in hyperboloid shape with a 200mm diameter. There are 4 seed drums with a total of 8 rows. Each seed drum contains 2 rows.
There are 8 holes each having a diameter of 9mm. In order to ensure uniform seed rate during operation as well as to ensure hill dropping of the seeds, baffles are provided inside the seed drum.
The diameter of the ground wheel is 600mm. The weight of the product is 10 kg.
- Seed rate
- Effective field capacity
- Theoretical field capacity
- Field efficiency
The performance of the product was tested at three different speeds and at three different quantity levels of the drum. The seed rate, hill to hill spacing , seeds/hill and hill missing index were compared for each of the different conditions. The following table shows the results of the test.
|Drum fill level||Treatments||Seed rate||Hill to hill spacing||Seds /hill||Hill missing index|
The KSNM Direct Paddy Seeder is operated manually and no safety procedures are specified.
