YANMAR Power Reaper on Field Test


The Farm Machinery Corporation Limited (FMCL) coinciding with the harvesting season of paddy in particular is providing various machines for hiring services throughout the country from the four regions. The combined harvesting machines and power reaper harvesters are already deployed in different places of the country with the contract operators operating the machines. The hiring of machines would immensely benefit the farmers in reducing the time and resources wasted earlier through manual harvesting. The FMCL is also looking for other alternative machines for better delivery of services to the farming communities in the country. One such machine is YANMAR petrol engine power reaper imported from Japan. A day long performance trial and field test was conducted on 29th of October, 2016 in Shari geog under Paro Dzongkhag before deciding to hire out to the farmers and final quality testing by Agriculture Machinery Centre (AMC). The power reaper was found very effective and would help the company in providing better and quality hiring services within the farming communities of the country.
