Better productivity of potatoes, simpler and easier method of planting

Teamplantee aims for better productivity of potatoes, simpler and easier method of planting and to reduce the cost of potato planting

Use Case

In Nepal, potatoes are planted manually with huge number of labors. Traditional tools like plough, hoe are used. Using potato planter facilitates farmers for easier and fast plantation. This will reduce time for plantation and number of labors. This planter requires only one labor for operating the tiller.

Potential

The traditional plantation of potatoes are mainly done on the seasonal basis on which the plantation is done on one season of the year. Lack of labors for potato planting is one of the major problem when there is unused land left after harvesting wheat/rice plants. To overcome this, the planter helps plantation in all feasible season timeline when there is dry land or open land. That is, it will facilitates maximum utilization of field.

Business Case

Our planter covers an area of 2035.75 m2/hr if operated continuously. This planter focuses on scientific planting considering approximate row to row and plant to plant distance. This planting machine can be commercialised in agricultural countries like Nepal. Technoogical improvement in agriculture sector is the increasing demand of the country.

Objectives:

  1. To minimize the cost of potato planting and time for plantation of potato.
  2. To increase the production and productivity of potato through the development of technology
  3. To ensure food security
