Field investigation was carried out on lithosols soils of Adamawa state Nigeria to determine the draught requirement of the soil under variable implement weight, disc spacing, tilt and disc angles of disc plough at constant speed of 7 km per hour. For the field experiment, the split- split- split plot design with three replications was used and randomized to reduce errors for the four factors. The tractor trace technique was used, and the draught is measured using a 20 kN mechanical dynamometer. The analysis of variance and Duncan’s multiple test range was also used to analyze the significance of each treatment on draught. The results shows that the weight of implement, tilt and disc angles are significant on the draught of disc plough the effect of disc diameter is also significant on draught. There is no significant change in the physical appearance of the tilled soil and this may be attributed to the constant speed of 7km used for the operation. It was also recommended that, experiment on draught of disc plough or other implement should be conducted on vertisols soils of Adamawa state, Nigeria.
