Abstract

A method was generated to spread the fertilizer automatically over the agricultural land by dropping the fertilizer over the impeller disc. A 25cc engine is used to rotate impeller disc in which the fertilizer drains and spreads from hopper where it is introduced. In tractor mounted or manual system they carry four and three wheels respectively. But here two wheels are used in which the bigger front wheel is connected to engine through supporting wheel can be adjustable. The speed of wheel is varied by control lever connected through a cable. In this the fertilizer spreads only in front side of impeller while its back side 180 is covered. The size and width of the fertilizer is reduced to make it less weight and suitable for multi crops. From this method the cost fertilizer spreader is reduced by 50%.
