Abstract. These days most research on agricultural machinery has been carried out through field tests using developed for each agricultural machine. However, performance evaluation methods for automatic transplanter have not yet been developed. Therefore, research on the development of performance evaluation method is needed. Therefore, in this study, test method was developed for performance evaluation for riding type vegetable transplanter. The performance evaluation method developed through this study is divided into two steps. First step is load measurement and analysis at PTO shaft of transplanter at main operating speed range; 30-50rpm (planting distance; 26-43cm). Through load measurement test and analyze the required power and load Transplanter. Second step is kinematic performance evaluation system. It is composed of circular soil bin transplantation test systems. These were developed for performance evaluation for transplanter hopper. It is confirmed that the miss-planted rate test was carried out at 30-50 rpm hopper driving speed conditions using three kinds of rising seeding using head lettuce. Through this study will contribute to reduce the period and cost of the developer. In the future, we plan to verify the general applicability of the performance evaluation method for agricultural machinery through actual field test.
