Abstract: The purpose of this article is to present an agro machine which was developed to perform operations such as seed sowing, fertilizer spreading and pesticide spraying. The first among the above mentioned operation is mechanically driven which consist of an intermittent metering mechanism to serve a primary purpose of achieving uniformity between the seeds to be sown. The other two operations is achieved by using a motor and submersible pump powered by a battery which in turn is recharged by a photovoltaic array. The performance of the machine is a measure of area covered uniformly and effectively. This machine is intended to reduce the efforts of the farmer by replacing the hand tool by mechanisms, the involvement of solar power as the primary source is even more convincing as it avoids use of conventional source of energy
