Abstract
Agricultural mulching sheet is used for Vegetable crops and fruit crops. In both crops mulching sheet is used for
consuming less water, weed reduction, temperature control, consuming less fertilizer, soil erosion and less evaporation due to
more sun light on the land. In this purposes the mulching sheet is required on soil. Earlier there are two types of Laying
mulching sheet, firstly manpower (minimum number of workers is 3 to 4) and tractor with attachment. Manual laying mulch
requires more manpower, more wages and less accurate. Tractor with attachment requires more cost for purchase the
attachment and also operation cost also more compared to manual process. This review collects the existing information about
the laying of mulching process, we found solution to this, reduce the cost when compared to conventional mulching process.
Earlier using different types of mulch, they are natural mulches (straw, compost, hay and wood chipping), paper mulch and
plastic mulch. Initially natural mulches have been used but last 40years plastics and papers have been tried, then found plastic
mulch is effective when compared to paper mulch. The objective of the newly designed machine is to reduce the operational
cost compared to conventional method, to reduce cycle time of laying mulching sheet and human effort, to minimize the water
consumption and fertilizer and the determination of solar energy across the year must be determined so that system is not
oversized. Solar panel is used in this machine apart from the electricity and fossil fuels like petroleum, coal and natural gases.

Key words: agriculture mulch, solar powered, laying, mulching machine.
