Abstract: Equipments used for agricultural purposes generally fail early due to impact, wear and fatigue. To increase their service-life and effective working, some structural changes on their surface become necessary. Shot Peening, is one such process, which improves the surface properties of a metal, resulting in increased life-span of the equipment. This has emerged as one of  the most useful techniques. The different forces and severe environmental conditions experienced by agricultural equipments during their operation are estimated and accordingly appropriate shot-peening technique is used to improve their life-span and efficiency. This leads to saving of extra-effort and time required in frequent changing of tools and equipments. This paper presents a brief description of this technique.
