Start a Agriculture Equipment Manufacturing Business


(364). Start a Agriculture Equipment Manufacturing Business
Agriculture in India is unique in its characteristics, where over 250 different crops are cultivated in its varied agro-climatic regions, unlike 25 to 30 crops grown in many of the developed nations of the world. Agriculture is one of the most important sectors of the Indian economy contributing 18.5 per cent of national income, about 15 per cent of total exports and supporting two-thirds of the work force

The manufacture of agricultural machinery in India is quite multifaceted and comprises village artisans, tiny units, small-scale industries, State agro-industrial development corporations and organized tractor, engine and processing equipment industries.
The Bureau of Indian Standards(External website that opens in a new window) (BIS) ensures that manufacture and marketing of agricultural and industrial products are of a good quality through its network of centres and laboratories. The BIS also prepares specifications for agricultural machinery and other appliances and stipulates test codes. Other than the BIS, the government has also set up other farm machinery and testing centres for the promotion of quality farm machinery.

The Opportunity

With a long value chain that spans across the agricultural cycle, Indian entrepreneurs have a host of opportunities to explore. These include equipment involved in land development, tillage, seedbed preparation, sowing and planting, plant protection, harvesting and post harvest activities.
Besides manufacturing, distribution and retail opportunities in post-harvest equipment are a plenty, and entrepreneurs could explore this area. As the cost of post harvest equipment is very high, a good margin exists for distributors of such products.There is plenty of scope of India becoming a low-cost manufacturing destination for foreign players. 
The MarketAlthough dependent heavily on monsoon, the demand for farm equipment has only risen over the years. “India comprised a $5.8 billion market for agricultural equipment in 2007, third largest in the world behind the US and China,” says The Freedonia Group. “India is the world’s second largest four wheel tractor producer behind China on a unit basis (output of around 305,000 units in 2007). The production cost for one tractor in India is less than half the level found in developed countries, which has enabled India to become a significant net exporter of lower horsepower tractors,” it adds.
The market penetration of tractors and other farm equipment is still very low. This clearly implies enough scope for growth. The KPMG-IBEF study draws a parallel with the consumer durables and auto sectors saying that when there is a low market penetration, coupled with availability of high quality, high technology products and ease of financing, the market booms.
“With shipments of $5.9 billion in 2007, India also maintains a significant agricultural equipment industry and is a modest net exporter of farm machinery.

Cultivator is an agricultural implement and a simple tool. It is fabricated from channel angle and flat section of mild steel. The size will depend on the type of land in particular area. The channel, angle and flats are cut to size and welded and fastened where required.

An Overview of Agriculture Machinery sector in India
Agriculture equipment constitutes all those equipments which help farmers to carry out the various processes required to enhance the output of quality crops.Mechanization has become the mantra of the agriculture industry.Agriculture equipment usage is prevalent in almost every part of the world.In olden days, people mostly depended on manual processes and there was no trace of any agriculture equipment.People had to put in a lot of sweat and blood in order to bring about quality production of crops.For instance, sowing of seeds alone used to take a lot of time and an individual was required to toil throughout the day. A particular task took up most of the day.However, things have changed drastically for the better.
It is said that necessity is the mother of invention and owing to the changes which have set in, throughout the world, it has made people sit up and think.Due to changes in the ecology, climate changes have set in and one is required to fight against nature.
Global warming, coupled with rise in sea levels and consequent eradication of coastlines and other hazards have necessitated the use of agriculture equipment as setting things straight no longer lies in the hands of man.Agriculture equipment comprises of several types of agriculture tools and agriculture instruments meant for carrying out different agriculture related jobs.There are many companies manufacturing agriculture equipment all over the world. The agriculture equipments not available in ones homeland may be imported from other countries.
There are different types of agriculture equipment required, the most common ones used are as follows:
    Agricultural Plough, Spring Loaded Tiller, Offset Disc Harrow Agricultural Motors, Agricultural Pumps, Irrigation Pumps Garden Rake, Pinch Point Bars, Pick Axe, Posting Digger, Chisel Tools Agricultural Implements, Cutter Mattock, Rail Road Pick Rotary Tiller, Rotary Tiller Spare Parts, Harvester Combine, Header Spare Parts Paddy Thrasher, Groundnut Decorticators, Chaff Cutters Agricultural Hoes, Agricultural Shovels, Agricultural Plouges Agricultural Chain, Agricultural Finger, Stainless Steel Pulley Agricultural Pump, Horticultural Pump, Water Lifting Pump, Gear Pump, Piston Pump Coconut Fiber De husking Machine, Coconut Palm Leaves Cutting Machines, Paddle Mixer Machines Agriculture Machines, Maize- Sheller, Paddy Thrashers Agricultural Equipment Spare Parts, Farm Equipment Spare Parts, Garden Equipment Spare Parts Agriculture Pumps, E centric Screw Pumps Chaff Cutters, Flour mills- Third Pedestal, Flour mills- Half Cabinet, Groundnut Decorticator, Stainless Steel Pulverizer Paddy Rice Thresher, Multi crop Thresher, Maize Sheller Vegetable Nursery Transplanter, Zero Till Multi crop Planter For Controlled Tractor Traffic, Seed Cum Fertilizer Drill, Aluminum Fluted Rollers Assembly, Axial Flow Vegetable Seed Extractor Tractor Trailer, Disc Harrow, Grass Cutter, Land Leveler Knapsack Sprayer, Agricultural Knapsack Sprayer, Knapsack Power Sprayer, Knapsack Sprayer India, Foot Sprayer.

Farmstead Equipment

  • One of the most commonly used pieces of farmstead equipment is the grain auger. Farmers use grain augers to transfer grain from one spot to another, such as from carts and trucks to storage containers. A typical auger features a rotating spiral or corkscrew-like apparatus (that pulls grain upward), and can be powered by an electric or internal combustion engine. Another common piece of farmstead equipment is a sorter, which is used to separate certain types of plant materials from others. Perhaps the most famous example of a sorter is Eli Whitney's cotton gin. The device uses wire hooks to pull cotton fibers through a screen, which separates the cottonseeds from the desirable cotton lint.

Farm Field Equipment

  • Perhaps the most well-known and commonly used piece of equipment in agriculture is the tractor: a high-powered, four wheeled motor vehicle that typically features two oversized rear tires. Tractors are invaluable for farmers largely due to their hydraulic systems, which allow them to control a number of different attachable implements for cultivation, planting and harvesting. Many tractors now incorporate microprocessors and other advanced electronics to ensure both safety and efficiency.

Cultivation Equipment

  • Two common pieces of cultivation equipment, or tools used for preparing soil for planting, are the plow and the harrow. While farmers use plows to overturn big chunks of earth, thereby loosening soil and covering up weeds, they use harrows to fine-comb the soil surface and to eliminate any remaining lumps.

Planting Equipment

  • Planting equipment includes seed dispersers and seed sowing machines. While seed dispersers or seeders shoot out seeds from a distance, seed sowing machines utilize actual needles to create openings for seeds and to push them down into the soil.

Harvesting Equipment

  • Reapers are tractor attachments that use sickles or curved blades to cut grain crops. They also feature sweepers or rakes, which push the cut-crops to the side after a certain capacity is reached. A harvester is a term that specifies a reaper that is also capable of binding crops in addition to cutting them.

  1. I found this blog is very informative on farm equipments

  2. Harrows are a type of agricultural machinery that has been used by now the Middle Ages disc harrow are upset subsequently than it comes to cultivating the soil previously crops are planted. The main advantage is that they can chop taking place soil that has been recently plowed and so eliminate clumps or clearly loosen the soil if it has been packed. In the adding taking place together, they were horse-drawn, but today they are usually towed after the tractor.If you are looking for disc harrows or supplementary subsidiary or used agricultural machinery for sale, mean the Internet.http://www.haniffarm.com

  6. The article is too general and vague. Not much technical information. I design and develop many agricultural machines as a hobby. I post more details and specs in my blog. I give detailed construction details of all the machines I develop so that people, farmers and users can understand the design concept and build these machines on their own. I encourage people to build machines themselves taking the help of small workshops and machine shops in their areas. My Leaf Shredding machine, Mechanical rake, ground Ripper, Washing machine, Mixer, etc have attracted readership all over the country. I send them Do - It - Yourself Sketches of the machines and sub assemblies. They have successfully built machines on their own. Time to time they contact me on e mail for clarifications and I give them in detail. I am so happy our people are now self reliant and have achieved self machine building. I do not charge any fees. I want to achieve self reliance.
