WHAT IS LASER LAND LEVELLER

Laser land levelling, a simple operation to prepare the land before sowing, can reap massive returns such as increasing yields, saving water and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

COMPONENTS OF LASER LAND LEVELLER

It comes with 4 main parts, Laser transmitter, laser receiver, control Box and scraper. We have listed these parts below for you to easily navigate through. We have complete systems ready to use as well.

Laser land levelling in Pakistan region

Life in rural Pakistan evokes an image of a farmer levelling the land with an oxen-drawn scraper. It is one of the most basic and integral farm preparations before sowing. Undulated land does not bode well for water absorption and farm productivity.

But for many farmers animal power is being replaced by machines. A laser land leveller- a machine equipped with a laser guided drag bucket- is much more effective and quicker in ensuring a flat table-top like surface.  An even  land means irrigation water reaches every part of the field with minimal waste from run-off or water-logging.

Benefits of Laser Land Levelling

• Laser land levelling considerably lowers irrigation time for rice by 47-69 hours per hectare per season and for wheat by 10-12 hours per hecate per season.
• It increases yields by an average 8 percent for both crops.
• It saves electricity about 755 kWh per hectare per year for rice-wheat systems.
• It’s cost effective. As demand increases, service providers rent out equipment and farmers collectively share the costs.
• A study showed that it reduces greenhouse gas emissions from saving on energy, reducing cultivation time and increasing input efficiency.
• Higher yeilds means higher incomes for farmers.

HOW IT HELPS Irrigation time:

Laser-levelling in rice fields reduced irrigation time by 47-69 hours per hectare per season and improved yield by approximately 7 percent compared with traditionally levelled fields. In wheat, irrigation time was reduced by 10-12 hours per hectare every season and yield increased by 7-9 percent in laser levelled fields.

Food security:

Based on analysis from the data, the study computes that if 50 percent of the area under rice-wheat systems in Sindh and Punjab states were laser levelled, it would result in an additional production of 699 million kg of rice and 987 million kg of wheat which amounts to USD 385 million a year extra. Not only does this translate to higher incomes for farmers but it also increases food security of the region given that the Pk-Gangetic Plains are a bread basket and rice bowl in South Asia.

Energy:

Less time spent on irrigation means less energy spent on irrigation. The study shows that laser land levelling saves electricity amounting to about 755 kWh per hectare per year for rice -wheat system.
