Abstract:

Small engine operated sugarcane harvester was tested under the field conditions. The performance evaluation of the small engine operated sugarcane harvester was compared with the traditional method of harvesting. The Small engine operated sugarcane harvester has effective width 100 cm. It was found that 0.1005 ha/h average effective field capacity at operating speed of 1 km/hr and 79.42 per cent field efficiency of sugarcane harvester with minimum labour requirements (5 man-h/ha) as compared to the traditional method of harvesting and we also found that harvesting cost with sugarcane harvester was Rs/ha 3043.50 than that of traditional method 10500 R/ha, sugarcane harvester was found more economical.


Keywords: Sugarcane, Height of cut, Effective field capacity and harvesting method
