In the usual agricultural practices, the sesame seeds are being cut manually with the help of specialized knife cutters by skilled farmers. The farmers are finding it tough to do the harvesting process under the hot sunlight. Hence modern sesame harvesting machines were introduced to the carry out the harvesting process. But those machines were too large in size when compared to the size of the sesame plant. In order to overcome the above mentioned disadvantages, a modified sesame harvesting machine is designed and fabricated in this work and it is aimed at reducing the harvesting time in the agricultural field and also to reduce the efforts of the farmers to a large extent.
