Abstract:

Harvesting of crop is one of the important agricultural operations. The availability and cost of labour during harvesting season is the serious problem. Timely harvesting of the crop is vital to achieve better quality and higher yield of the crop. To ensure efficient and timely harvesting operation manually drawn battery powered reaper was developed at CAET, JAU, Junagadh. Performance evaluation of developed machine was carried out at different forward speeds (0.8-1.2 km/h,1.3-1.7 km/h and 1.8-2.2 km/h) and different cutter bar speeds (200 rpm, 300 rpm and 400 rpm). The maximum effective field capacity and field efficiency was found 0.074 ha/h and 90.77 % respectively. The maximum cutting and conveying efficiency of the developed reaper was found 95.01 % and 89.66 % respectively.
