LASER GUIDED LAND LEVELING
In Sri Lanka a significant amount of irrigation water is lost during its application due to poor farm designing and unevenness of the fields. This problem is particularly prominent in the case of rice fields. Having uneven crop levels increases weed burden and results in uneven maturing of crops. All these factors lead to reduced yield and poor grain quality.
Unevenness of the soil surface has a significant impact on the germination, stand and yield of crops. Farmers also recognize this and therefore devote considerable time resources in leveling their fields properly. However, the traditional methods of leveling land are cumbersome, time consuming and expensive. The modern and effective method of Laser guided land leveling involves leveling a field within a certain degree of desired slope using a guided laser beam through-out the field.
The Benefits of Laser Leveling
- Higher crop productivity.
- Wide variability in crop yields at field/ village/ block/ district/ regional level.
- Better distribution of water.
- Water savings.
- Improvement in nutrient use efficiencies.
- Option for Precision Farming.
DIMO Agri-Machinery undertakes land leveling operations along with other specialized land preparatory procedures such as large-scale post hole diggings.
