A rotavator is a tractor-powered implement that requires 25-65 HP tractor for its functioning. It comes with the set of blades that cut, break and mix the soil. The implement has an internal gearbox that allows to adjust the speed of rotating blades.

Benefits of tractor rotavtors:

* Grinds the soil properly

* Adds value to the soil fertility

* Consumes less fuel

* Saves time and labour

* Improves the crop growth


Tillage is the land preparation activity that involves modifying, manipulating and loosening of soil. Primary and Secondary Tilling are two types of tilling practices that require different farm machineries depending on soil and its depth.

MB Plough:

Mouldboard Plough or MB Plough is powered by tractor and is a perfect agro-machinery for Primary Tillage Process. Most often, it is used to mix the compost and manure into the soil. MB Plough can be used with 30-40 HP engine tractor.

Field Cultivator:
