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.
