Mango Pruner (Tractor Mounted)
|The use of proposed mango tree pruning machine will help the farmers to overcome the pruning problem which will lead to yield increase, control tree size, disease control and ultimately increased income for the farmers.
A tractor operated mango pruner which is useful for pruning the trees and can do top dressing as well. The machine is mounted on tractor and gets drive from hydraulic system. It can be attached to any tractor of size 40hp and above. The blades are made of carbon steel.
Corn Picker (Tractor Mounted)
The mechanized picking is required to up lift the maize crop in the maize production area. AMRI intends to introduce new mechanization technology for corn picking to reduce picking losses at the farm level. This mechanization aspect will result in higher yield and better crop return to the farmers.
Mechanical Vegetable Seeder
Most of the vegetable are sown manually which is laborious, costly and time consuming. Mechanical Vegetable Seeder is used for planting onion, carrot, lettuce, spinach and similar small seeds of vegetables. Disk system provides a fine adjustment of row and seed distance. Minimum seed distance is 2 cm and minimum row distance is 17 cm.
Vegetable Nursery Transplanter
At present vegetable nursery is manually transplanted. AMRI intends to introduce a new farm mechanization technology for vegetable nursery transplanting to the farmers. This mechanization aspect will result in better crop yield at the farm level.
Fodder Cutter cum Chopper
Fodder is used to feed livestock. Increasing trend of livestock has forced to grow more fodder to feed animals. In the production process of fodder, manual harvesting is time consuming and difficult task. In order to overcome this problem AMRI intends to import fodder cutter cum chopper (Double Row) for its promotion and adaption.
Silage Baler cum wrapper
Animal fodder is required round the year. In order to preserve it for off season animal feeding, silage plays an important role in this regard. Silage baler cum wrapper is very useful machine for making and wrapping bales. Proper wrapping of bales retain their oxygen free condition throughout the storage period so that the silage is perfectly preserved until fed to animals.
