Abstract:

The field experiments were conducted at farmer fields in Mandsaur district of Madhya Pradesh to study the comparative performance of different harvesting methods for wheat crop consisting of three treatments viz., self-propelled reaper binder with crop bundle collection in the field manually (T1), self-propelled vertical conveyer reaper with crop bundles making and their collection in the field manually (T2), and manual harvesting using sickle with crop bundle making and collection in the field (T3). The self propelled reaper binder shows significant effect on field efficiency with 88.43 percent saving of labour in comparison to manual harvesting of wheat. The harvesting losses were found minimum in treatment T3 (21.3 kg/ha, 1.52%) whereas maximum in treatment T1 (28.8 kg/ha, 2.06%) followed by treatment T2 (24.5 kg/ha, 1.75%). Also, the lowest cost of harvesting was found in treatment T3 (2875 Rs/ha) with a payback period of 535 hr. Hence, the harvesting of wheat by self-propelled reaper binder with crop bundle collection in the field manually should be advocated over manually harvesting and self-propelled vertical conveyer reaper in western Madhya Pradesh.
