Article
Full-text available
An experiment was carried out at the Agricultural Research and Experiments Station in the Sayyada Region of the College of Agriculture - University of Kirkuk, in order to study the effect of forward tractor speed and depth of ploughing in some technical indicators and physical properties of soil in Loam soils in 2019. Two factors were studied, dept...

A field experiment was carried out in one of the plastic houses of the College of Agriculture, University of Kirkuk during the 2018-2019 agricultural season, to study the effect of three cultivation distances and three cucumber hybrids Cucumis sativus L. hybrids and their interaction on some of the characteristics of the cucumber plant using the dr...
Article
A study was conducted to investigate the effects of three varieties of sweet potato (VitAto, Orange and Stone) by three cutting speeds of the mower (2300, 2500 and 2700 rpm) at three different moisture content for the plant (22.4, 30.39 and 41.06 %), wet base (wb %). The results indicate that all the treatments were significant at p ‹ 0.01 signific...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
A rotary mower with five different blade cutting angles was tested at five different cutting speeds to determine the resultant pulverized percentage of sweet potato vine (< 28mm) and the power consumed (Joule). The best results for effects of interaction between blade angles and mower speeds was achieved by the 30° blade angle at 2440rpm with highe...
Article
Two different shapes of knives (L and Y-shaped) for the rotary slasher with 300 knife cutting angle at three cutting speeds (1830, 2066 and 2044 rpm) were used to indicate their effects on the power consumption for pulverizing sweet potato vine which passed through the sieve (< 28 mm2). The results indicated that all the treatments were significant...
Article
Full-text available
The effects of different mower speeds (2358, 2440 and 2553 rpm) and different knife angles (30°, 40° and 50°) on sweet potato vine pulverization were studied. The results indicated that all the treatments were significant at p < 0.05 and p < 0.01 significance level for the pulverized percentage of sweet potato vine. The 30° knife angle gave the bes...
Article
Full-text available
A study was conducted to investigate the effects of planting distance on yield of broad beans (Vicia faba L.), also known as fava beans, using drip irrigation. The yields of three different species of broad beans (Spanish, Turkish and Iraqi) at three different planting distances of 20, 25 and 30 cm were determined. The result indicated that both th...

A study was conducted at the Malaysian Agricultural Research and Development Institute, MARDI, Serdang, Selangor, Malaysia, to investigate the effects of Vertical Mower with double sided knife at four different speeds of 2000, 2200, 2500 and 2700 rpm, with two grass moisture contents at 20.37% and 57.07% wet base (wb%) during grass chopping (pulver...
Article
The effects of a rotary slasher with two different shapes of knives (L and Y-shaped) at three cutting speeds (1830, 2066 and 2044 rpm) were studied on percentage of pulverization of sweet potato vine passing through the sieve (< 28 mm2). The results showed that all the treatments were significant at p 0.05 and p 0.01 significance level. The best re...
Article
Full-text available
A study was conducted to test the effects of three different speeds of 1830, 2066 and 2440 rpm of a mower knife with serrated edges and two different feeding angles of 45° and 90° on the pulverization of sweet potato vines. The results indicated that all the treatments were significant at 99% significance level for the pulverized percentage of swee...

A study was conducted to explore the effects of three different knife angles (30, 40 and 50°) and three different speeds (1830, 2066 and 2440 rpm) of a Mower on sweet potato vine slashing (pulverizing).The results showed that all the treatments were significant at 99% significance level on the percentage of pulverized vines. The best results were f...
Article
Full-text available
In this study information on the development of combined sweet potato harvester is presented. The study focuses on the design, manufacture and choice of the best slasher for cutting and fragmentation of stems and leaves (vegetative portion) for the crop to facilitate the process of harvesting and extraction of tubers. A survey on various types and...
