Simulation and analysis of innovative hand tool harvester

  There is a real need to develop a hand tool harvester since harvesting tubers ofDioscorea hispida (ubi gadong) is time tedious and consuming. The tubers were surrounded by roots, which were well gripped to the soil which made harvesting process difficult. Therefore, a new tool equipped with cutting device to cut the roots of D. hispida is required. The information from the experiments is used...
