Basin lister


  • It is a soil conservation equipment especially useful in dry farming areas receiving meagre rainfall. The equipment has one to three plough bottoms with ground wheels.
  • The plough bottoms are lifted often during operation by the cam arrangement and by this furrows are formed in the field intermittently. The precipitated water is retained in the furrows, thus reducing the top soil erosion and conserving moisture.
  • Several versions of basis listers are now available in India such as tractor drawn and power tiller drawn basin listers. An offset disc harrow drawn by tractor can be converted to a basin lister by shifting the center of rotation of the dics to one side. Seeds are sown in between the staggered pits.
