Farmyard manure distributor by Ashikbhai Gani (Gujarat)
Problem Addressed: If any farmer wants to spread farm yard manure on their farm they always need help from the service provider who comes with their own tractor, trolley, and JCB with labour. They pick manure from the farmer’s dump site and make piles in the farms. Afterwards, farmers need to spread piles in the field which is labour-intensive and time-consuming. The innovator came up with a machine that can do both operations simultaneously.
Technology: Ashikbhai made trolleys with a height of 2 feet to make them compatible with conventional arrangements in the tractors. The final design was made after a lot of experiments on RPM, torque, weight balancing, turning, weight optimization, etc. Both dry and wet manure can be spread by the machine.
Societal Impact: By use of this trolley farmers save their time, spread farm yard manure more uniformly, and reduce labor expenses.
