Abstract

Soil crusting or capping is a serious problem in arid and semiarid regions; it restricts the emergence of crop seedlings. A mechanical, rolling soil crust breaker was designed, developed, and tested in the field. The equipment is of simple construction and breaks the soil crust over the rows of germinated seeds effectively, improving emergence significantly without any damage to seedlings. It can be manually operated as a single-row unit or a multiple row unit and can be pulled by animal draft power or a small tractor
