Abstract:

The hand shelling using fingers remains the most favoured method for shelling of sweet corn cob kernels. The rate of hand shelling method is too low and also causes pain in the fingers used for plucking of the sweet corn kernel from the cob. It was observed in many cases the sweet corn kernels can be shelled by different techniques viz. shelling whole cob, shelling cob by breaking the cob across the length and shelling cob by splitting/paring the cob along the length. Therefore it was found necessary to study the shelling rate by these techniques. The three different sweet corn shelling techniques viz. Shelling whole cob (T1), shelling cob by breaking the cob across the length (T2) and shelling cob by splitting/paring the cob along the length (T3) were studied at Department of FMPE, Dr. D. Y. Patil College of Agricultural Engineering and Technology, Talsande Dist: Kolhapur in the Sept. 2017. A sweet corn cobs of Sugar-75 variety were used for the entire study. Corn shelling rate, Corn shelling capacity was studied. The average shelling rate (cobs/h) with technique T3 (51.14 cobs/h) was 5.17 and 3.6 times more than technique T1 and T2 respectively. The average shelling capacity (kg/h) with technique T3 (13.58 kg/h) was 5.16 and 3.6 times more than technique T1 and T2 respectively.
