Modern farming has several types of equipment for increasing the productivity of a farm. Some of them are pre-harvest equipment, and the rest of them are post harvest equipment. And, we are here to tell you about post harvest equipment in farm, which are used to make valuable things from crop residues. So farmers can make more profit with the help of post harvest technology.
What is Post Harvest Equipment?
The post harvest techniques save time and labour cost in enhancing the marketability and quality of products also. The tools used in this technology are called post harvest equipment. These machines provide a reach to avoid post harvest losses. And machinery for Post-harvest also gives potential to the farmers to make more money from crop residues. The equipment includes many factors which define its working ability. Post harvest factors affect fruits & crop qualities, method of harvesting, time of harvesting, packaging, storage etc., which ensures high earnings.
Here, we shortlisted the 5 best post harvest equipment for your convenience, these machines are very beneficial for post-harvest processing.Which are used to make valuable things from crop residues to help farmers make more profit.
1.Grain Harvester machine
Grain harvester machine are used in the harvesting and cleaning of cereals such as wheat, barley, corn (maize), oats, rice, rye, and sorghum, as well as a number of non-grain crops, including flax, rapeseed, soybeans, and sunflower seeds.
The farmer simply drive them through a field of crops and they cut, thresh, and clean the grains all by themselves using rotating blades, wheels, sieves, and elevators. The grain collects in a tank inside the combine harvester (which is periodically emptied into carts pulled by tractors that drive alongside), while the chaff and the stalks spurt from a big exit pipe at the back and fall back down onto the field.
2.Grain Thresher Machine
Grain thresher machine is used for separating wheat, peas, soybeans, and other small grain and seed crops from their chaff and straw. Grain thresher machine with high threshing rate,which can reach 98% and final kernels are very clean.It is easy to operate, and the discharge port is equipped with a powerful blower and vibrating screen which further blows out impurities while filtering kernels that is pretty clean.With the high capacity of 1000kg/h, the millet threshing machine is very popular in the African market, Zeno Farm Machinery supply more than 1000 sets there .
3.Grain Drying Machine
Grain drying machine are used to dry the grain and prevent them from spoilage during storage. When cereals are harvested at maturity, it dries faster than when it’s harvested prematurely. Some grains, particularly corn, which is harvested with high moisture content, must be artificially dried to stop spoilage. High-temperature grain dryers may be used to quickly reduce the moisture content by 5%–10%.
4.Chaff Cutter Machine
Chaff cutter machine is used to cut fodder, straw, hay, long grass and other types of fodder into small pieces. This is done for easy mixing of the fodder before feeding to the animals. It also helps in curing of the fodder, makes storage easy and makes the fodder more palatable for the livestock.It has good working performance, which can cut various kinds of crop straws, herbage and so on.The cutting blade is hardened to withstand pressure, and it is also made wear-resistant.
5.Straw Baler Machine
Straw baler machine are used for baling of straw into bales of rectangular cross section. The tractor PTO operated machine consists of reel type straw pick up assembly, and straw compaction and tying units. It automatically picks up the residue straw from field with the help of reel which is transferred into bale chamber with the help of feeder and then straw is compressed with the reciprocating ram into a compact variable length size. It also automatically ties the knots using metal wire or nylon rope.
For post harvest equipment use in the field or at the edge of the field, Zeno Farm Machinery combines provide an ideal solution.We offers the possibility to install almost all machines from its product range on a single frame. The biggest advantage of these combines is that the transition from one machine to the other is always perfect. Since the grain thresher machine are equipped with a heavy-duty wheels, they can be easily transported – even over long distances. It is also possible to equip these machines with diesel or petrol drive arrangements.
