The paddy straw management is the biggest problem in Punjab. It is based on dry fermentation biogas plant, a batch system, which produces biogas continuously for a period of 3 to 4 months with initial filling of 16 quintal paddy straw husks and 4 quintal cow dung. After the duration of 3 to 4 months paddy straw husks get converted into bio-digested slurry due to fermentation that stop biogas production which ultimately give rise to a problem i.e. removal of bio-digested slurry. In this research work a semi-automatic machine is developed to overcome the major problem of removal of bio-digested slurry. Further different straw husks form like, round bales, square bales and well chopped material are used to find impact on the performance of machine.

Key word: Semi- automatic bio-digested Slurry lifting machine, Paddy straw, Dry fermentation, Biogas plant, Square bales, Round bales.
