Abstract

Kerala is the second largest producer of areca-nut in India which depends on conventional climbing technique and skilled labour for harvesting areca-nut however in recent time’s skilled climbers has become scarce and farmers find difficult to harvest the nuts. Manual climbing involves high risk jumping from one tree to another. This project deals with a manual machine which uses a spring and pulley mechanism to climb and harvest the nut.
