Agriculture is the one of the basic source to the formers. However the dehusking crop is done manually by using sharp edges. By this method the production rate is low and the consumption of time is more. So it is necessary to develop an agricultural machine to increase the production rate and to decrease the time consumption. There are many number of crops are available in India like Areca, soya, green gram, tur, moong. Currently few machines are available for dehusking the crops. But machines which are available in market are not affordable by normal people due to their high cost and high maintenance. In order to overcome these problems this project is proposed, in this device the pedal operated mechanism is incorporated. In this Potential energy of human is converted to kinetic energy and utilized the same. The machine assembly consist of pedaling mechanism hence it is affordable to everyone. The dehusking is made by the rotating of the driving shaft which consists of sharp edges on its periphery. The pedal is operated by manually which rotates the driving shaft with the help of chain sprocket and gear drive. This mechanism can be used to accommodate different size of various crops are cultivated anywhere in the world. This work mainly concentrating on peeling of areca nut.
