General Information 

Banana ripes in three to five days after harvesting.  Ripening during the long distance transport and export, results in huge post harvest losses.  To delay ripening of fruits, vacuum packaging is one of the methods, where the matured banana hands are packaged and prevented from contact with air/ oxygen.  Using a simple gadget for vacuum packaging, banana can be stored under vacuum. This delays ripening upto 21 days and further ripening is completed with in one week after opening the package.

Banana Harvestor

Banana Harvestor

Banana Harvestor

  • Mechanical harvesting requires the produce must be located at a point where it the inherent rigidity in mechanical solutions can be overcome          

  • The Banana Harvester is based on the principle that when the Centre of Mass is displaced, there is a resultant moment (rotational motion).           

  • Mechanical harvesting is that it removes the bunch without damaging the plant. The stalk can then also be harvested to produce fibre, giving farmers a second income from each plant, and reducing waste caused by discarding the tree.
