Innovation Details

Rahul’s father, Sanjay Singh is a farmer by profession. Rahul at an early age witnessed first-hand the problems faced by the farmers and wanted to do something to ease their burden.  He thought of making a battery powered tractor. He experimented and finally came up with a tractor that could plough an acre of field in three hours. It is eco-friendly with automatic charging and a speed of 70 kilometers per hour. It is easy to use and the switch can be charged with solar battery. The plowing machine can be easily transported and is ideal for sugarcane rolling in the fields. It can easily plow six kattha fields in two hours. It is battery-operated and so does not require diesel and petrol. It also has an accelerator and a wireless system, allowing farmers to communicate while on the move. The first prototype was developed in July, 2020. The tractor has secured first place at the India International Science Festival. Rahul has got financial support under MVIF by GIAN and SIDBI for prototype development, testing and trial, and marketing of the tractor.
