Abstract— Mungbean (Vigna radiata) is one of the major pulse crops in Bangladesh. It contains different nutrient, vitamins, mineral and amino acid. Agricultural machinery play an important role to reduce drudgery of farm works as well as minimize operational time and production cost. An experiment was conducted with three treatments viz. T1 = Two Wheel Tractor (2WT) + Broadcasting seed, T2 = Power Tiller Operated Seeder (PTOS) and T3 = Strip Tillage (Two wheel tractor operated seeder modified as Strip tillage seeding) on farm research. The objective of this study was to achieve the goal of increased Mungbean production in Bangladesh through different tillage and seeding methods. Besides, to disseminate information in the farmer’s level conservation tillage is new technology for increasing and sustaining productivity of Mungbean cultivation in mechanized way. From the study, the results revealed that seeding with Power Tiller Operated Seeder (PTOS) treatment was the most effective for production of Mungbean among all tillage and seeding methods in considering total yield 1582.53 Kg/ha. So, it may be concluded that the treatment Power Tiller Operated Seeder (PTOS) considered as the best treatment compared to all other treatments and it can be recommended for more Mungbean production and ensuring nutritional security.
Keywords—Mechanized cultivation, power tiller operated seeder, strip tillage and two wheel tractor.
