The conventional tractor-mounted cultivator could not get proper depth on hard soil while carrying out the tilling operation on his farm. To address this problem, the innovator developed an auger plough where five rotary augers were placed in place of cultivator tynes. They were powered by tractor PTO, however experiencing frequent wear and tear, he further developed a modified MB plough and Combi-tillage implement. The tractor-mounted combined tillage (combi tillage) implement does primary tillage operations as well as secondary tillage operations together. It consists of a soil cutting tool (modified plough or cultivator tynes) and a soil clods breaker cum leveling unit (tractor PTO powered auger shaft).
