Farm Machinery & Post Harvest Technology

In the new millennium, the Institute is proud to be continuing its commitment for development of agricultural machinery. Like in the past, a major component of R&D effort has gone in towards the development of appropriate machinery for productivity enhancement in the agricultural and the post-harvest processing sectors. CMERI is still adding to the list of agricultural machinery it has developed, the latest being the 35 HP Tractor and the Engine Operated Tea-leaf Plucking Machine. In addition, CMERI devoted its highly competent Heat Power Engineering Group for developing appropriate dryers for use in processing agriculture produce. Out of this effort emerged different dryers, details of which are provided in this section. CMERI also undertook the optimisation of process parameters for yielding a standardised class of expander-extruders for the production of edible oil.
