Himmel Tech’s Kisan Dost Precision Seed Planter offers a low-cost solution as compared to other internationally available planters part from offering locally available parts, distribution and after sale services.
Currently cultivars are being sown at a seed rate of 16-20 kg per acre while maize hybrids are being planted at a seed rate of 8-10 kgs per acres depending upon seed size. The maize cultivars are commonly sown through broadcast or kera and pora methods in which larger than recommended seed rate is used to ensure optimum plant population. In this process about 50 percent seed is wasted or later plants are thinned to get optimum population. It also further increases the labor cost of the farmers. In case of hybrids, the seeds are sown manually on the ridges or flat and thus need large number of labors for this process. In this process, 10-15 percent seed is wasted, or later plants are thinned to get optimum plant population.
Himmel Tech’s Kisan Dost Seed Planter can significantly reduce the cost of sowing by almost 50% from about Rs. 48000 per 10 acres to Rs. 25000 per 10 acres. It exactly maintains plant to plant distance of 7-10 inches and row to row distance of 27-30 inches and thus ensures optimum plant population. It will help boost the area under maize hybrids which is restricted due to labor shortfall and hot summer at the time of sowing.
