Abstract: ManyagriculturalmaterialsarebeingintensivelyusedinagriculturalOperationsandfor the construction ofagricultural structures. These include shade nets, mulching materials, polyhousecoveringmaterials,drippipes,lateralsetc.Allthesematerialswillhaveastandard strengthandlimitofelongationorcompressionbeyondwhichtheyfailtoexistintheoriginal form .‘the study ofthesestrengths and elongation characteristics is veryimportant in the selectionofaparticularmaterialforaspecifieduseandhencethemeasurementofstrengthof thesematerials.Manyfactorslikeenvironmental,animal,culturalactseffectsonthestability ofthesematerials. The present study was conducted to obtain the strengths ofdifferent agricultural materialsusingUniversalTestingMachine. Theresultswereobtainedbyconductingtensileand compressiontestsondifferent agricultural materials with load at distance and distance at load conditions, to obtainthe maximumpermissiblebreakingstrengthandcompressionstrengthofthematerials.Underload atdistance condition tensiletest, Polyhousecoveringmaterial of20micronthicknesshas extended up to 187.8 mm and the maximum permissible load ofelongation on it was 0.10kN—mandof40micronisupto229.73mmat0.15kN—m.Shadenet25%hasextendedup to45.86mmandthemaximumpermissibleloadofelongationonitwas0.22kN-m.Shadenet 35%—23.75mm,O.28kN—m.Shadenet50%-36.12mm,0.28kN-m.Shadenet75%— 19.55 mm, 0.29kN-m.
