G.R. Mari , S.A. Memon , N. Leghari and A.D. Brohi

The experiment was carried out to evaluate the performance of potato planter at Latif experimental Farm, Sindh Agriculture University, and Tandojam during 2001. The potato planter was powered by Fiat-480 diesel tractor at low 3rd gear speed. The parameters were determined at moisture content of 15.73%, fuel consumption was 24.04 1/ha. The travel reduction was 5.04% field efficiency was 67.47%, field capacity was 0.80 ha/hr. The farmers are interested to plant more potato by using potato planter, because it covers more area in less time. It is labor saving machine.
