Sugarcane Harvesting Equipment for Small Scale Farms

DOST-MIRDC in partnership with SRA developed three locally-fabricated sugarcane harvesting equipment for small farms. These are prototypes of sugarcane cutter, leaf stripper, and loader. Performance tests were conducted in Central Azucarera Don Pedro (CADP), Nasugbu, Batangas and SRA-LAREC Floridblanca, Pampanga. Results of the test and the feedback of both farmers and project personnel were used to improve the equipment and create operation manuals for each. The three equipment were regarded as complete and functional.
