About the Testing Centre

The rapid demand on farm equipment has promoted many manufacturers to take up production of farm machinery. With heavy investment on farm machinery, it is necessary to have some means of assessing the performance of machines being brought out by the various manufacturers before being used by the farmers.

The major objectives are:

  1. To test Agricultural Machinery manufactured within the country or imported (as per list given in Annexure I) with a view to assess their functional suitability and performance reliability so that it will help farmers and other prospective users in determining the comparative performance of machines available in market, provide materials to engineers   and extension workers for guiding users in proper selection of equipment, form the basis for standard specification to be used by the  manufacturers and distributors and help financial institutions in recommending financial assistance both to the manufacturers as well as farmers.

  2. To assist Bureau of Indian Standards in formulation of standards for testing of agricultural machines covered under the scope of Certification Marks Scheme
