Abstract:

Farm workers are engaged in various agricultural operations like pre-sowing, weeding, picking and post picking. All these tasks are time consuming and become full of drudgery over years. Access to affordable technology reduces drudgery, saves time and increases work efficiency of farm workers. Adoption of such technologies radically changes their life. Vegetable picking is one of the laborious tasks performed by the farm workers at the fields. Efforts have been made to develop user friendly pick bag for vegetable picking which would reduce the drudgery and increase their efficiency. The present study was carried out in pre dominantly vegetable and fruit growing areas namely Sirsa and Fatehabad districts of Haryana with the objective to assess suitability of developed vegetable picking bag for diversified activities on various parameters. Developed bag was found suitable and thus recommended for diversified activities i.e. vegetables (brinjal, okra, guar, chilli), fruits (Kinnow, guava) and flowers (marigold) picking.
