Abstract

Agriculture field is most growing and essential field in India. Agriculture is the broadest economic sector and plays a significant role in the overall socio-economics of India. In 2013, agriculture and related field contribute 13.5% of GDP and 50% workforce in India. As per above discussion, we can easily conclude that the Agriculture sector is most suitable and beneficial for research and development regarding the new technologies and concepts like to implement. After so many efforts and services, this field is still under development and so many barriers come to implement new ideas.


Grading according to the sizes is an important value adding technique for most agricultural products. And also the price of the many agricultural products varies significantly according to their uniformity in size. Uniformity in size not only makes the produce more attractive to consumers but also improve its processing qualities. At present, size grading of most agricultural crops including big tomato are carried out manually by crop collectors, whole sellers and retail sellers, most of farmers market their products without any grading.


Hence, this research study attempted to design and development of a low cost size grading machine for size grading of big tomatoes.
