Harvesting of groundnut is very tough in drought conditions.
Amrutbhai developed the Mini Kaliu, which is exclusively used for the harvesting of the groundnut crop under severe drought condition. It is a simple twin bullock drawn implement, which is used to dig out the groundnut in hard soil condition. The implement is made up of cast iron weighing about 30 to 35 kg. The length of beam is 40 inches, which rests on two supporting wheels. These wheels help the attached blade to penetrate in the soil uniformly and easily. The thrusting of blade to a particular depth in the soil can be adjusted with this implement. Different length blades are available, which can be used accordingly. This device, which can be used easily by one or two persons, reduces time and labour and improves the harvesting rate.
