Single Ox Yoke

singleox1.jpg

Many farmers own only one ox and borrow the second from neighbors as existing yoke arrangements are for two animals.

Tools for Conservation Agriculture such as sweeps or rippers should be designed for minimal soil disturbance and draught force to carry this out.

This multipurpose prototype functioned well with the weeder and ripper/planter.

Animals may require extra training if used with working as a pair but seem to adapt rapidly.

Multi Purpose Tool Frame

This simple frame can carry a range of tools plugged into a socket on the frame.

Essential points to note are the width of the frame to suit that of the animal and the length of the frame so that the animal’s legs do not contact the tools when on full stretch.

This arrangement is very effective for inter row cultivation as its operation is not affected by the height of the crop.

The shafts were made extendable for experimental purposes.

The ripper shown has provision for a seed dropping tube for planting.

Drawings are available as it has considerable potential for application in areas where animals are subject to disease
