Abstract

India is a major producer of the sugarcane in the world and during 2009-10 it produced 18.9 million tons of sugar, which was nearly 11.8 % of the total sugar production of the world. So there is large space for development in sugarcane plantation. In conventional method of planting sugarcane sets are planted manually in furrows. This process is very much time consuming and labour intensive. So we developed the new machine which cuts the sugarcane and feeds into furrow as well as feeding of fertilizer and spraying pesticide is done automatically. We use the cam operated mechanism with rotary cutter which cuts the sugarcane in uniform length and fed into the furrow due to gravitational force automatically. So piece of the sugarcane is distributed uniformly in the furrow so density of the sugarcane production is uniform. In traditional method fertilizer is spread by the hand so the density of feeding fertilizer is varies as per the worker which leads to extra supply of fertilizer. Due to this there is loss of farmer so we develop mechanism which feeds the fertilizer in uniform quantity. So after all processes leveler spreads the soil on pieces of sugarcane in the furrow.

Keywords: modeling, design, furrow, cam, fertilizer. sugarcane , labour, planker, etc.
