Innovator Profile

618730-innovationFacing problem of frequent wear and tear and maneuverability of commercial tractor operated groundnut digger especially at the corners, Ratanram Dudhval (52) modified the groundnut digger by adding a vibration pad/shock absorber spring and two pivoted wheels to its rear.

Ratanram, who only studied till class nine, is a mechanic and runs his own small scale industry named Jay Kishan Krishi Yantra Udyog with his younger brother, and their sons. Due to his family conditions, he could not continue his studies further and had to engage himself in farming activities. Six years back, he shifted to a nearby place to set up a small scale industry for manufacturing agricultural machinery like plough, harrow, seed drill, groundnut digger, trolley, chaff cutter, tractor operated bull dozer etc.
