Harvesting by Danthi brothers

Kemmannu Oct 22:Danti brothers of Badanidoor are the happiest people on this earth right now, in the sense that their hard work of sowing, planting and caring has paid off and they are reaping the bounty of their hard work. Harvesting Machine, which made its debut three years ago, is handy to tackle the problem of shortage of manpower. The machine can harvest one acre of land within one hour. Even though the rain was scanty this year, the crop was good in the low lying areas.

 When everyone is showing their face off from agriculture, it is good to see a farmer’s family, who insist and persist with farming and depending on agriculture for their livelihood. The day is not far off, when some school children visit them to see what agriculture is all about.

The Machine, which has been brought from Tamilnadu, is much in demand as it harvests more than an acre of rice crop with in an hour. The charges for the machine are Rs. 2800/- per hour, which Danthi brothers feels is much cheaper than the manual labor cost.

The Machine separates the fodder and the rice corn, which reduces a lot of additional labor cost of carrying the reaped crop to the courtyard and separate the rice corn from the fodder. Only problem is that the fodder is smashed and cannot be used for thatching the roofs but could only be used as a cattle feed. “since, there are hardly any rice straw thatched houses at present in Kemmannu, that is not a problem compared to the benefits” says Santhu with a sense of satisfaction.
