Abstract

The problem faced by farmers who work on small fields while harvesting crops as it takes a lot of time, labour and effort to cut the crops manually. Although Harvesting machines are already available in the market but these are quite large and costly. Since farmers with small lands have no such large usage and also harvesting is done only twice or thrice in a year, it becomes difficult for small farmers to afford such kind of a machine. So, it becomes essential to make a portable and cost efficient semi or fully automatic crop cutting machine. To achieve this aim, a lot of ground research has been done in this project wherein various farmers of our village were met and their problems were understood. Based on all the findings, a design for a crop cutting machine has been developed which is expected to help small scale farmers. A prototype has been developed which is easy to operate and can be used for efficient and effortless harvesting of crops. The model so constructed, can be used by small scale farmers for increasing their profits by decreasing labor and machinery cost. This model will offer a superior and cheap technique to decrease labor and endeavors required in collecting crops.
