The energy parameters of the tractor-chisel plough
MetadataShow full item record
Contemporary agricultural production has high demands in sense of high productivity technical and production systems and thus imposes construction of new highly sophisticated technical solutions. One of these new solutions for the energy and economy efficient agricultural production is CASE STEIGER 400 tractor. The aim of the research was to determine the overall tractor working parameters and their optimization in tillage using a chisel plough. Obtained results show that the average fuel consumption during the field experiments was 38.8 l/ha, productivity 2.4 ha/h and energy consumption 68.6 kWh/ha. In the case of non-conventional tillage overall energy consumption was 250 MJ/ha, indicating that energy savings are feasible if adequate production technology is applied and technical systems used.
