Description: The experiments were conducted at Wheat Research Centre, Dinajpur with different tillage methods and four seed rates to compare the performance of the seeder and find out the optimum seed rate in respective tilling methods. The results demonstrated that field efficiency of power tiller operated seeder (POTS) and power tiller was significantly higher than that of country plough. Effective field capacity (3.19 ha/hr) of POTS was the highest among other treatments. Fuel consumption of the seeder was 1.4 1/hr. Number of spikes increased significantly with the increase of seed rates. No significant yield difference was found among the seed rates and tilling methods, however, 100 kg/ha with POTS and 120 kg/ha with power tiller two pass was found better. Seeding cost of wheat by power tiller operated seeder (225.0 Tk/has) was 4-7 times less than that of power tiller and country plough.
