Abstract:

In India, earlier days, skilled and experienced laborers’ were engaged to climbing on coconut tree for harvesting nuts, crown cleaning and toddy tapping. But now a day’s difficulty to get the service of skilled coconut climbers in time and their high wages are thus perceived as important constraints in the field of coconut cultivation. It was a challenge to the agricultural technology developers to fabricate a simple, safe and easy to use device for climbing coconut palms, which could even be operated by an unskilled person. Keeping in view the above facts, the present investigation on performance evaluation and modification of coconut tree climber was undertaken to develop safety unit for overcoming coconut harvesting constraint.


Keywords: Coconut harvesting, Modification of tree climber.
