Design and development of a powered one-way plough

, : Design and development of a powered one-way plough. AMA, Agricultural Mechanization in Asia, Africa and Latin America 26(3): 9-12

A power transmission unit of a 1-way plough was designed based on the number of discs, spacing between consecutive discs, forward speed of the tractor and operating depth. The computed tractor power was 28.62 hp, but the design considered a 35 hp tractor due to availability. The plough was tested in a rice field on a silty clay loam soil with a moisture content of 30.26%, a bulk density of 1.64 g/cc and a cone index of 8.94 kg/cmsuperscript 2 at Pantnagar University, India.
