The main aim of this paper is to provide a facility to farmers in harvesting the paddy crop at low cost by using the solar
energy. A design for a crop multipurpose cutting machine was developed. The proposed design of machine is very
simple, robust and easy to operate. It has been designed and tested in the real time paddy crop harvesting effectively
with low cost and it does not contribute to greenhouse gas emission. Also it has been examined for harvesting various
crop varieties and reduces operation time & cost.
