In this modern era research in the agricultural field is going on. Plant nursery is important part of agriculture field and facing many problems. The problems are availability of labours, low productivity rate and more manual efforts required for seed feeding. In plant nursery more time is required for plantation which is due to seed feeding process. For reducing these problems of plant nursery research of automatic seed feeder mechanism is used. The mechanism consists of frame, hopper, belt drive, sewing motor, conveyor etc. Hopper consists of seeds (brown mustered seed) are fall down on belt. This customised belt transfer seeds from one end to other end. The customised belt contains conical shaped holes on sheet metal which mounted on cloth material. While movement of belt excess amount of seeds are minimised by stripper plate. Those seeds are passed through stripper plat and present in holes are fall down in the tray.
