The conventional tractor-mounted cultivator could not get proper depth in hard soil while carrying out a 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 types. 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. The modification includes the replacement of the bar point share of MB plough by tractor PTO-powered auger.
