Impact of the use of small rice threshers on the production performance of irrigated rice farms in the municipality of Kalibo, Aklan [Philippines]
Cipriano, P.A. | Altis, E.S. | Garcia, B.S.
Results of the data gathered from 45 rice thresher users showed that the average per hectare yield of the respondents slightly increased after the use of threshers. The average increase in production was 3.02 cavans per hectare per cropping or an increase of 3 percent in production. Efficiency-wise, mechanical threshing was more efficient than manual threshing, whether it be "hampasan" method or feet trampling. The small rice threshers had an output of 31 or more cavans per hour on the average. The quality of palay threshed manually was the same as that threshed by mechanical threshing.Show more [+] Less [-]
