Abstract

The purpose of this work is to develop a dosing system that provides high-quality bunch planting of watermelon seeds with a given seeding rate and their uniform distribution over the plant nutrition area. It is important to know how many seeds it is needed in the bunch in order to provide the required number of plants in a certain plant nutrition area. The method to achieve this goal is to determine the optimal operating modes for the seeding device, in which the dosing system would supply the seed to the bunch without gaps, searching for dependencies that can determine the required number of the sown seeds in the bunch, taking into account their germination and the number of plants specified by agrotechnical conditions in every bunch. Based on the obtained dependencies, determining the probability of bunches with various numbers of plants, while sowing four seeds in the seedbed with maximum field germination, the design of experimental seed discs is proposed, allowing bunch planting and germination due to easy destruction of the soil crust. At the same time, optimal use of the nutritional area for plants, and, consequently, an increase in the yield of the sown crops is ensured. Experimental seed discs with a group arrangement of suction holes (four cells each) will provide bunch planting of watermelon seeds in accordance with agrotechnical requirements.
