Farmer is the backbone of India and agriculture production is main key of Indian economy. India has older history of agriculture, In earlier days farmer used animals, like Horses, Oxen, Bulls, Donkey etc and humans in agriculture for cultivation purpose but due to population explosion and industrial revolution there is drastic reduction in agricultural land thereafter the new techniques implementation is required in agriculture sector. Due to the industrial revolution the rational development took place in the technology which in turn led the scientists and engineers to think about cultivation using machines. This led them to develop the equipment’s like tractors for ease of work. In India nearly 75% of peoples are farmers whose main source is the agriculture but in that 18% are Small farmers having farming area of about 1.0 – 2.0 hectares whereas 57% are Marginal farmers (area less than 1 hectare). Nowadays most of the farmers were using tractors for cultivation of land .But tractor is not economical for small land owners or farmers and its initial cost is huge which small farmers cannot afford it, whereas Horses, Oxen, Donkey, Bulls are requires regular maintenance and more time consuming. Thereafter in this work we are going to design & manufacture multipurpose or multi task agricultural equipment for farmers which can accommodate different types of attachable/detachable equipment for farming. Because of that we can reduce the cost of land preparation, reduce the labour cost, increases the speed of work and also reduces the human’s effort. The main purpose of this work is to design small, compact, handy & user friendly equipment even small farmers can afford and use it comfortably.
