  1. 1. About KGVK Krishi Gram Vikas Kendra (KGVK) was formed in 1972 as a Corporate Social Responsibility arm of the Usha Martin Group, a Rs.5000-crore multinational Indian company. Keeping in view of the weeder features and its affordable price to the farmers, KGVK believes to join hands to get in reach of the weeders to the farmers.
  2. 2. KRISHI GRAM VIKAS KENDRA (KGVK) His Excellency the former President of India Shri A. P. J. Kalam handing over the TERI Award to the Chairman Shri B. K. Jhawar in recognition for excellence in corporate social responsibility.
  3. 3. Status of Indian agricultural <ul><li>About 70% of Indian populations are either farmers or involved in some agricultural related activities . </li></ul><ul><li>Out of which about 70% are small and marginal farmers with small and marginal holdings. </li></ul><ul><li>Rice is the major staple crop. </li></ul><ul><li>Huge gap in Technology adoption and Implement used with small and marginal farmers. </li></ul><ul><li>(Company like Mahindra, Eicher, Sonalika etc. are manufacturing implements for big farmers who is having the purchasing capacity.) </li></ul>
  4. 4. Rice: Thrust Areas and Required Interventions Low Productivity –Causes Intervention About 50% area is rainfed 1. Target potential areas in each agro-climatic region 2. Adoptation of System of Rice Intensification (SRI), direct seeding 3. Good quality Agri-Implements (Weeder, Seed Drill etc.) 4. Soil test based balanced use of NPK + Micronutrients 5. Adoptation of IPM Delayed sowing/transplanting Low Seed Replacement Rate Huge gap in Technology & Implement use Low and imbalanced use of fertilizer/nutrients, deficiency of micronutrients Heavy infestation of weeds and insect pests
  5. 6. Wealth from Weeds Weeds - Not a problem but an opportunity In SRI, Uprooted weeds are waste that can be converted to organic wealth as compost. They enrich the soil’s nutritive value in a completely chemical-free manner.
  6. 7. Why Weeder…? <ul><li>Environment friendly. </li></ul><ul><li>Decreases drudgery. </li></ul><ul><li>Productivity friendly. </li></ul><ul><li>Input cost can be curtailed. </li></ul><ul><li>Enhancement in the productivity of labour. </li></ul><ul><li>Soil health improvement. </li></ul>
  7. 8. Weeder and its benefits <ul><li>One Weeder = Two acre capacity of weeding for 5yrs </li></ul><ul><li>Organic Manure = 2tons per acre in two weeding </li></ul><ul><li> = 4 tons in two acres </li></ul><ul><li> = Rs.2000/- </li></ul><ul><li>Labour productivity = 10 mandays per acre </li></ul><ul><li> = 20 mandays per acre </li></ul><ul><li> = Rs. 2000 </li></ul><ul><li>Weeder contribution in yield = 25% approx. </li></ul><ul><li> = Rs.2000/-per acre </li></ul><ul><li> = Rs. 4000/- for 2acres </li></ul><ul><li>Total return in a year = Rs.2000+Rs.2000+Rs.4000 = Rs.8000 </li></ul><ul><li>Total rerun in 5 years = Rs.4000/- </li></ul>

  19. 24. Specification “ U “ Shape Handle U shape handle is design for better control and better grip over the weeder. It is like bicycle handle for easy movement of Krishi Usha weeder in muddy Paddy field. It is made of Mild steel ERW pipes with 20 mm Nominal bore . Max inside dia 22.3 mm dia and outer dia 26.9 mm . Precisely cut into a PLC controlled band saw machine . After that these were bend in a perfect bending fixture to have a bend at a desired length within 157 degree.
  20. 25. Specification Rotor R otor is one of the main component in “Krishi Usha Weeder” as its main work is to uprooting the weeds from Paddy Fields and it also help in keeping the soil lose for air flow in the soil. In the process of uprooting the weeds it also put back the weeds in soil which get decompose and weeds work as organic manure, which provide nutrient to Paddy plants. In the manufacturing process Mild steel ERW pipes is taken as base and eight teeth having 3 teeth: 2 teeth are welded having equal distance from each other. Teeth are bended for uprooting the weeds.
  21. 26. Specification Float Tray F loat tray main work is to keep the weeder floating over the muddy field. It is design in such a way that it make possible for the weeder to float over the flooded field. Float tray is attaché with a frame having rotor in it.
  22. 27. Specification Other Parts of “Krishi Usha Weeder” <ul><li>Rotor Shaft is use in keeping the rotor moving freely. </li></ul><ul><li>Shaft Washer keeps the shaft fix in one position. </li></ul><ul><li>Dowell pin lock the washer of the shaft. </li></ul><ul><li>Rotor pipe is use for welding the rotor teeth. </li></ul><ul><li>All the body parts of the Krishi Usha Weeder is made up of Mild steel ERW </li></ul><ul><li>pipes, which is rust resistance. </li></ul>Rotor shaft Shaft washer Dowell Pin Rotor pipe Mild steel ERW pipes
