Abstract:

The present study was planned to assess the drudgery and postural discomfort level on the performance of hanging grain cleaner in comparison to the traditional sieve. Thirty farm women of adopted villages of KVK Ratlam were randomly selected for the study. The results of the study indicated that the amount of energy consumed or spent by the farm women were observed to be lower while performing selected activities with the improved technologies as compared to the adopted traditional methods. It was also found that with the help of modified technology, the work output was more. The respondents reported that the cleaning and grading activity was moderate in term of perceived rate of exertion as compared to be heavy in case of traditional sieve.
