Parshapally Johnson | Nenavath Shivakumar | Shaik Umairahmed

Abstract: The aim is to develop an automated seed sowing machine so as to make farming easier using cam and follower mechanism. The cam is driven by the pulley which is attached to the front axle. This is eliminate the need of electricity and fossil fuels. This aims towards a pollution free farming equipment. By incorporating a cam and follower mechanism, an automatic seed sowing machine is developed by which one can overcome the disadvantages of conventional seed sowing methods. The seeds are stored in a hopper and for one complete rotation of the cam and the follower hits the diaphragm on which the seeds rest and a single seed is let into the pit, the seed plantation process can take place without wastage of seeds. Attachments are provided for ploughing and compaction.
