QUALITY RESEARCH OF DOSAGE AND SUBSURFACE APPLICATION OF BIG-SIZED GRANULES FERTILIZER DURING STRIP-TILL FOR SOWING OF MAIZE
The article concern to the scientific and research works related to the development of mechatronic control system of sowing unit in the tilling-and-sowing combined machine. The essence of the project is the use in the combined machine of innovative control system responsible for the seeding process. The system will control the work of seeding unit (drive) and will maintain a predetermined depth of seeds sowing. Grooved or pinned units used in seeding are characterized by variability in application rate as a function of the changing conditions of work (e.g. on the slopes). In the proposed solution, on the basis of the identification of the sensitivity of the sowing machine on the changing conditions of work, the control algorithm will be developed, which after application to a controllable propulsion system equipped with the necessary sensors will eliminate inaccurate dosing. Project/Grant No K.2/IN2/64/182979 is co-financed from the budget allocated for science. Patent No P395909 was made as a part of the grant.
