Putting to shame agricultural researchers and engineers whose efforts should be to provide solutions to farmers, former sales tax official Prakasan Thattari introduces a novel areca nut plucker. Comprising of pulley, rope and knife, the contraption climbs the tree and lops off a bunch of nuts. This native of suburban Mayanad has says that depending on the rate at which the user can draw the rope the faster the climb, which can outpace even a man. Farmers who suffer from dearth of labour who climb trees testify that this ingenious device is indeed a blessing. Courtesy: Mathrubhumi TV
