Abstract:

Agriculture is the main source of income in India. Women are actively involved in various agricultural operations wherever the work is monotonous, time taking and recurring like sowing, weeding, harvesting, bundling vegetables etc. Majority of these activities have to be carried out manually either with simple tools or bare hands which leads to injuries, physiological stress, skin allergies and scratches. Hence the present study was taken up to introduce ring cutter in harvesting vegetables and flowers to reduce the stress and improve the work output. Purposive random sampling technique was adopted in selecting 30 farm women in Maheswaram mandal, Rangareddy dt of Telangana. Nearly 28% increase in harvesting activity was found apart from reducing the cuts and scratches on the fingers.
