Organic farming practices need to have advanced technologies for intercultural tillage operation. The innovator worked on developing low-cost and low-maintenance multifunctional tillage equipment with a mechanical sensor. He developed a Tractor PTO-operated multipurpose equipment having attachments like plough, disc harrow, weeder, grass cutter, and furrow opener. While in operation, whenever the mechanical sensing rod strikes any plant/tree, the whole working unit moves away from it, through the spring attachment, and helps protect tree roots from getting cut. It also results in leaving a very small area around the trees uncultivated.
