To test Agriculture Implements and other Agriculture Machinery manufactured within the country or imported with a view to assess their functional suitability and performance characteristics, so that, the published test results would:




Objectives

  • Serve as a basis to decide the type of machine best suited for Indian conditions which could be encouraged for import, production and popularization.

  • Help the farmer and other prospective purchasers in determining the comparative performance of Machine available in market

  • Provide material to Engineers and Extension workers for guiding farmers in proper selection of equipment.

  • Form the basis for standard specification to be used by the manufacturers.

  • Help financial Institution in recommending financial assistance both to the manufacturers as well as to farmers.

  • Provide feedback to the manufacturers through user's survey on the nature of field complaints and standard of pre and after sales service facilities provided by them.

  • Assist Bureau of Indian Standard in formulation of standards and testing of Agriculture machines covered under the scope of certification marks scheme.

  • Help the manufacturers in product development by providing confidential Test Report.





Testing of Agricultural Machinery

Two categories of tests viz. (1) COMMERCIAL & (2) CONFIDENTIAL will be carried out at Central Farm Machinery Training and Testing Institute (CFMT&TI), Budni and other Regional Farm Machinery Training and Testing Institutes.

1. COMMERCIAL TESTS are for establishing performance characteristics of machines that are or ready for commercial production. The following types of commercial tests will be undertaken:

  1. Initial Commercial tests on indigenous or imported proto-type machines ready for commercial production.
  2. Batch Test on machines which have already undergone Initial Commercial Test and or are being manufactured commercially in the country.
  3. Test in accordance with OECD Standard Test Code shall be undertaken on machines (which are already undergone initial commercial test) on the specific request of the manufacturer/applicant, exclusively for export purposes.

2. CONFIDENTIAL TESTS are for providing confidential information on the performance of machines whether ready for commercial production or not or to provide any special data that may be required by the manufacturer / applicant.


General Regulations for All Tests

  1. Machines may be tested at the request in waiting of the manufacturer / accredited importers referred to as applicant herein-after.
  2. Tests will be carried out at the discretion of the Director, Central Farm Machinery Training & Testing Institute, Budni or Director of any of the Regional Institutes, hereinafter referred to as “Testing Authority” to whom application on prescribed form may be addressed. For testing of tractors, only Director, CFMT&TI, Budni will be recognized “Testing Authority” for the whole country.
  3. All the tests will be conducted as per BIS Test Code. If for any machine / component the BIS test code is not available, the test code shall be framed by the Testing Authority whose decision shall be final.
  4. The amount of test fee and other estimated expenditure will be intimated to the applicant who will deposit it in advance through a Bank Draft drawn on the Bank mentioned in the application form in favour of the Director of the Institute. The advance will be adjusted at the end of the test. The applicant shall deposit the balance charges payable in the manner indicated above, before test report is released.
  5. (i) All charges on account of test fees, stores, fuel, oils, lubricants, spare parts, general stores, workshop charges, other items as laid down by the Ministry of Agriculture, labour over-heads incurred during the test shall be borne by the applicant.
