Deepali Bajpai, Richa Singh and Yatiraj Khare
Harvesting of brinjal activities are not only drudgeries but time-consuming also. Hence, the present study was undertaken to introduce the ring cutter and assessing its acceptability among farm women in the adopted village of Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Narsinghpur to performing harvesting of brinjal.. Reduction of women's drudgery with the use of ring cutter was asses in the terms of ergonomic cost. The ergonomic cost was calculated by measuring heart rate, energy expenditure, and total cardiac cost of the work. The results indicate that the ring cutter harvest 42 kg/hr brinjal as compare to bare hand 34.2 kg/hr with 33% labour saving.
