Abstract: In view the accuracy requirements of sowing depth control for precision planter, we carried out the design and development of control system. This paper main includes the working principle of the control system, the hardware and software design of electro-hydraulic proportional control system. It also respectively explains the software programming of PLC, the software programming of touch screen. Practical application shows that this system has advantages of stable operation, high reliability, convenient operation and maintenance, with high promotion and use value.


Keywords: Precision panter, Sowing depth, Electro-hydraulic proportional control, PLC, Touch screen.
