Land leveling is expected to bring permanent improvement in the value of land. Leveling work is carried out to modify the existing contours of land so as to achieve certain objectives desired for efficient agricultural production system. These objectives are includes:
(i) efficient application of irrigation water,
(ii) improved surface drainage,
(iii) minimum soil erosion
(iv) increased conservation of rain water specially on dry lands and
(v) Provision of an adequate field size and even topography for efficient mechanization.
The animal drawn leveller consists of a wooden leveling board with a handle. Depending upon the soil condition the shape of the board varies. In the front portion of the board two hooks are provided for connecting it to the yoke.
