Lecture Farm Power in INDIA – Human, Animal, Mechanical and Electrical Energy Sources and their Use in Agriculture Lecture Two Stroke and Four Stroke Engines, Working Principles, Applications- Types, Power and Efficiency Lecture Different Systems of IC Engine- . New ideas and developed technologies in agricultural operations depend to a large extent on scientific research diversity. Their results and implementation are responsible for increased agricultural production. The dynamic nature of agricultural. Mechanization of power intensive agricultural operations, such as land preparation, threshing, grinding and milling, is characterized by non-human sources of energy input to replace human and animal ones required in the Size: 1MB. NEED FOR FARM MECHANIZATION 7 (vi) The use of high power tractors will facilitate land forming for water harvesting and conservation. Seeing the present trend and considering the future demand of additional power sources, it is visualized that by , the average farm power need in India will be about 2 kW/ha of which the share of animate source.
Mechanization may be defined as the process of injecting power and machinery between man and materials in a production system (Khalequzzaman and Karim, ). Some other agricultural activities have already been mechanized and the most important one is water pumping through STW and DTW. FARM MECHANIZATION Mechanized agriculture is the process of using agricultural machinery to mechanize the work of agriculture, greatly increasing farm worker productivity. The effective mechanization contributes to increase production in two major ways: firstly the timeliness of operation and secondly the good quality of work. Farm Mechanization in the country is se t to enter a. farm power availability and productivity (Singh, ). requirement and time of operation ar e reduces by 78% and 50%. The third important source of farm power is mechanical power that is available through tractors and oil engines. The oil engine is a highly efficient device for converting fuel into useful work. The efficiency of diesel engine varies between 32 and 38 per cent, whereas that of the carburettor engine is in the range of 25 and 32 per cent.
Characterization of the process of mechanization and farm power requirement. Ahmedabad: Centre for Management in Agriculture, Indian Institute of Management, [pref. ] (OCoLC) Document Type: Book: All Authors / Contributors: Girja Sharan; D P Mathur; Maya Viswanath. Farm mechanization is a crucial input for agricultural production. Without farm power and the appropriate complementary tools, implements and machines, farmers would struggle to emerge from subsistence production. With demands being exerted on the planet’s natural capital by ever. that affect the mechanization process. Debates about mechanization and mechanization policy can become very emotional Advocates of rapid mechanization find themselves accused of exaggerating its direct output effects or of confusing mechanization with modernization or large machines and farm size with efficiency. Mechanical power: The third important source of farm power is mechanical power that is available through tractors and oil engines. The oil engine is a highly efficient device for converting fuel into useful work. The efficiency of diesel engine varies between 32 to 38 per cent where as that of petrol engine varies from 25 to 32 percent.
