The main objective of the project is to design and fabricate an automated onion planting machine. The onion (Allium cepa L) is one of the commonly used crops which are grown in most of the farms in India and abroad for their consumption purpose and also export purpose. Onion growing farmers undergo hurdles in planting of onion seedlings because of shortage of farming labours during planting onion crops. So, necessity of developing an automated onion planting machine increased. Various physical properties like soil, weather, plant, seedlings, and soil fertility were determined to fabricate the automated onion planting machine. The automated onion planting machine plants onion plants in straight row at a predefined interval between each plant without any human intervention using automation. Automation plays a major factor in developing the automated onion planting machine to save farmers time and labour cost to plant onion plants in a row.
