%X The purpose of this research was to study and predict fuel consumption rate of tractor due to different aspect ratios of chisel plow blade and to determine a general relationship equation between aspect ratio ( ) and fuel consumption rate. An ITM-399 (81 kW) tractor and a mounted-type chisel plow with 9 shanks were used. The 5 and 10 cm width chisel blades were used. The experiments were conducted in a clay-loam soil at 9% d.b moisture content, three levels of tillage depths (10, 15, and 20 cm), and three levels of travel speeds (3, 4, and 5 km. ) in three replications. Results from F-test at 95% showed that three was no significant difference between measured values and predicted values as compared to 1:1 line plot. Normalized Root Mean Square Error (NRMSE) and Mean Bias Error (MBE) indices were used to verify the accuracy of the equation. The results validated the precision of the attained equation.
