Automatic seed sowing machine are expensive and not affordable by small farmers in India. Traditional method of seed sowing practice causes muscular fatigue. It also leads to severe back ache. This paper focuses on the prototype development of manual cum automatic seed sowing machine at a minimum cost and to reduce the muscular fatigue associated with traditional method of seed sowing practice. The activities of this work include ideation, detail design, analysis and finally prototype development. In the ideation stage, solutions were sketched and finally best solution was selected using weighted matrix method. The detail design emphasis on the overall dimension and bill of materials for the proposed final model. The ergonomic analysis was performed in Catia V5 using Manikin and results indicated moderate risk. The cost estimation of the final product was presented. A minor variation of the developed prototype is recommended for commercialization.
