Recommendations for farmers (in brief with title)
Development and performance evaluation of tractor drawn cultivator cum spiked roller.
     The farmers of South Saurashtra Agro-climatic Zone and manufacturers are recommended to use Junagadh Agricultural University developed tractor drawn cultivator cum spiked roller for seed bed preparation. It saves 68.31 per cent cost of operation as compared to traditional method.
   દક્ષિણ સૌરાષ્ટ્ર ખેત આબોહવાકીય વિસ્તારના ખેડૂતો અને ઉત્પાદકોને વાવણીલાયક  જમીન તૈયાર કરવા માટે જૂનાગઢ કૃષિ યુનીવસીટી, જૂનાગઢ દ્વારા વિકસાવેલ  ટ્રેક્ટર સંચાલિત દાંતી સાથેનો સ્પાઇકડ રોલર ઉપયોગમાં લેવાની  ભલામણ કરવામાં આવે છે.આ ઓજારના ઉપયોગથી રૂઢીગત  સાધનોની સરખામણીમાં ૬૮.૩૧%જેટલા  ખર્ચની બચત કરી શકાય છે.
