Abstract: The present investigation was carried out at research farm of IGKV, Raipur, Chhattisgarh in the year 2018-19 and 2019-20. This experiment was carried out to optimize the following design and operational parameters. Planting material; three size of potato tubers (Round, oblong and long-oblong), independent parameters; Peripheral speeds (V1, V2, V3), Drive wheels used (W1, W2, W3), Angle of furrow opener (S1, S2, S3), Dependent variables; Single percentage, Double percentage, Multiple percentage, Missing percentage, Damage percentage. The combined effect of peripheral speeds, angles of shovel and drive wheel sizes on seed rate for all round, oblong and long-oblong shapes were observed. The averages missing percentage for round shapes were varied from 1.49 to 2.02 %. Minimum missing percentage were observed as 1.49±0.07 % (V1S2W1 or in T1), 1.65±0.09 % (V2S1W3 or in T2) and 2.02 % (V3S3W3 or in T3). Damage percentage for round shapes was found minimum in T2 or V2S2W1 (0.92±0.15%) followed by T1 or V1S2W1 (1.30±0.23 %) and T3 or V3S1W2 (1.50±0.20%) respectively. The average ranges of damage percentage were 1.30 % to 1.63 %, 0.92 % to 1.05 % and 1.50 % to 1.75 % respectively. The average values of missing percentage for oblong shapes were found minimum in treatment combination V1S2W1 or T1 (1.28±0.05 %) followed by V2S2W1 or T2 (1.79±0.01 %) and V3S1W2 or T3 (2.08±0.21 %). The maximum damage percentage for oblong shapes were found in treatment combination V3S1W2 or in T3 (1.82±0.06 %) followed by V2S3W2 or T2 (1.64±0.13 %) and V1S2W2 or T1 (1.44±0.28 %) respectively. It was observed that lowest missing percentages for long-oblong shapes were found in case of treatment combination V1S2W1 or T1 (1.56±0.11%) followed by V2S2W2 or T2 (1.93±0.09%) and highest % missing were obtained with V3S3W2 or T3 (2.28±0.17%) respectively. The lowest damage percentage for long-oblong shapes was found in case of treatment combination V1S2W1 or T1 (1.30±0.17%) followed by V2S3W1 or T2 (1.69±0.27 %). The highest tuber damage percentage was found with V3S1W3 or T3 as 1.92±0.11 % comparatively.
