Abstract

Agriculture being one of the major occupation in India, Agriculture plays a vital role in the Indian economy. Indian agriculture has registered impressive growth over last few decades. It is very essential to discover and implement new idea in this field, though lot of work has been done in this area. It is unfortunate that, these ideas are not being implemented properly in actual field. This is due to high cost and is complicated for rural people. Multipurpose agriculture or farming machine is basic and major machine involved in agriculture for maximum yielding. The Conventional method of weeding, watering, pesticide spraying and cutting is a laborious process and hence for that reason there is a scarcity of labours and basically, many farmers in India also use bullocks, horses and buffalo for farming operation. This will not satisfy need of energy requirement of the farming as compared to other countries in the world. This result in delayed agriculture crop production practices to overcome these difficulties, we are thinking that human and animal efforts can be replaced by some advance mechanism which will be suitable for small scale farmer from economical and effort point of view. So, we are developing this machine which will satisfy all this need and to solve labour problem. A solar powered multipurpose agricultural machine is designed for weeding, watering, pesticide spraying and cutting purpose.
