A suite of simple bullock-drawn implements has been developed at ICRISAT to form broadbeds and furrows and to carryout subsequent field operations easily. Agribar II, an improved version of the Agribar fitted with a four-row planter, can sow various crops and per form tillage operations. Simple implements based on a T-bar have been developed for making broadbeds, applying fertilizer, sowing, and interrow cultivation. A crust breaker was developed to enhance seedling emergence through the surface crust . A spinning-disc knapsack sprayer and a groundnut digger have also been developed to meet specific requirements of farmers who grow groundnut in the semi-arid tropics.
