The study focuses on the development and performance assessment of a garlic planter, conducted at the Swami Vivekanand College of Agricultural Engineering and Technology & Research Station, Indira Gandhi Krishi Vishwavidyalaya, Raipur, Chhattisgarh. The evaluation considered various parameters, including miss index, multiple index, quality of feed index, field capacity, emergence rate index, percentage emergence, and yield attributing characteristics etc. The findings contribute to enhancing garlic cultivation practices, potentially boosting productivity and efficiency in the field.

Keywords: Missing index, multiple index, quality feed index, emergence, garlic planter
