Abstract: The horiwntal and vcrtical forces acting on three chisel plows having different shank shapes were measured in a sandy loam soil. The shank shape of the first plow was curved, while those of the second and third plows were semi-straight and semi-curved, respectively. The effect of forward speeds and plowing depth upon the horizontal and vertical force measurements were investigated. Soil characteristics, chisel plow sr:ecifications and results oftillage experiments were reported. A significant increase in horizontal force (N/shank/em ) was observed for all the three commercial chisel plows and was proportional to the increase in the forward speed. However, non-signilicant increase in vertical force (N/shank/cm2) was observed for all thc three plows with an increase in the forward speed. The curved shank gave values of horizontal and vertical forces (N/shank/cml) greater than that of the other shank shapes.
