Title: Effect of Implement Combining on Agricultural Tractor Performance
Author: Aboelgasim, Tarig Dafaalla Awadelkarim
Abstract: he present study was carried out at the demonstration farm of Faculty of Agriculture, Shambat, University of Khartoum in a clay loam soil, to investigate the effect of using single (ridger, chisel) and combination (ridger – chisel) tillage implements on machinery field performance parameters. The measured parameter included draft required power, unit draft, slippage, field capacities, efficiencies and fuel consumption. Also to correlate power requirement with the other machinery performance parameters. The results showed that, the implement combination (ridger – chisel) recorded the highest values of draft (18.4 KN) power requirement (30.58 Kw), unit draft (8.74 KN/m), wheel slippage (21.18%) and fuel consumption (12.55 l/hr). Meanwhile the ridger that lowest values of field capacity (0.90 ha/hr), and efficiency (71.43%). Statistical analysis showed that, the effect of implement type on draft, power requirement, unit draft, wheel slippage, field capacity, efficiency and fuel consumption was highly significant at (1%) level. Multiple correlation between power required, fuel consumption effective field capacity and between power required, slippage, effective field capacity and between unit draft, fuel consumption, slippage were highly significant (r = 0.84), (r = 0.98) and (r = 0.98) respectively.
