Today’s era is shifting towards the rapid growth in all sectors including the agricultural sector.In India main problem with agricultural sector is that farmers are farming the land with traditional methods. In future, for better quality of food farmers have to implement the new techniques which will not affect the quality of soil and increases the crop production. The aim of our project is to design and develop a solar operated electronic seed-drill with seed flow regulator machine. In our country 98% of contemporary machines operated on burning fossil fuels to run IC engines or external combustion engines. In rural areas, for seed sowing and fertilizer placement are manual, using bull or using tractors. These techniques are time consuming and productivity is low. And also tractor emits carbon dioxide and other harmful pollutants in the environment. This causes air pollution and noise pollution and this will lead to a realistic energy crisis in future. Now the perspective of this project is to reduce the time and minimize the working cost. it reduces the time for digging and seed sowing operation by using solar energy to run the robotic machine. In this machine solar panel is used to catch solar energy and then it is converted into electrical energy to charge 12V battery, which then used to give power to a shunt wound DC motor. This power is then transfer to the DC motor to drive the disc. IR sensors are used to maneuver machine in the field. Here sensors are used to define the area of land and machine senses the route length and pitch for movement from line to line. Seed sowing and digging machine will move on different ground contours and it performs cultivate, sow the seed and water the ground after closing.
