MECHANIZED PLANTING OF SEEDLINGS OBTAINED IN ALVEOLI
Â In the paper, the authors present a study on the mechanized planting works of seedlings, made with an experimental machine with rotating seed pot planter. For this, seedling of tomatoes, eggplants and peppers were prepared and it started with obtaining the seedling by sowing in alveoli and studying its evolution and quality. The seeds were placed in well-chosen alveoli depending on the seeds size.Until the emergence and development of the seedlings, the germination bed was prepared according to the agrotechnical requirements. The seedlings were Â planted Â using the above equipment.
The obiective of the study is to evaluate the performance of the experimental machine with rotating seed pot planter. Determinations were made regarding the qualitative indices of the respective work, the planting depth and its uniformity, the distance between plants in a row and its uniformity, the degree of damage of the plants. The obtained results were Â compared Â with the data from the specialized literature and conclusions were drawn regarding the possibilities of using the experienced equipment for the mechanized planting work of the seedlings obtained in the alveoli.
Â As a result of the study, very good values of the qualitative indices of the work in case of the rotary distributor was found.
