With current scenario of labour scarcity, and to develop agriculture on business lines, mechanization in modern agriculture is call of the day. On-farm mechanization is a scalable technology to improve productivity and incomes through efficiency in on-farm operations like sowing, inter-culture, harvesting and threshing. Studies indicate that increase in power availability results in an increase in crop intensity and productivity, envisaging the importance of mechanization in improving farm-based livelihoods.
