In today’s world of competition, there is a need for faster rate of production of agricultural products as the agriculture is the backbone of India. In India, farmers are facing proble ms of labour shortage. Therefore, there is a need of mechanization in the Indian agricultural sector as the agriculture sector is still dependent on labours & hence it is labour intensive. The need for mechanization is increased by the scarcity of workers on account of urbanization and the consequent rise in labour costs. Also, speed is the major factor in the faster rate of production which helps to improve the quality of agriculture products like sugarcane. Sugarcane harvesting by a machine has a more capacity to cut the sugarcane faster compared to the manual one. Hence, need of using sugarcane harvester in India is necessary for faster rate of production of sugarcane products as well as harvesters take less time to cut the cane and cuts cane in smaller parts so that it becomes easy to transport with larger amount of quantity in one trolley. This project aims to design and analyze small scale sugarcane cutting machine harvester as an attachment for tractor for sugarcane harvesting to reduce farmers’ effort and to increase production of agricultural products of sugarcane at the lower cost which can be affordable to Indian farmers or a group of farmers. The cost of an attachments goes up to Rs.35000/ - .The design is done analytically, drawn in Pro - Engineer Wildfire 4.0 & results are analyzed in Ansys 11.The project also aims to design and analyze a Cu tting, Conveying and collecting methodology of a sugarcane harvester as an attachment to the tractor which takes the power from tractor only through its Power Take off (PTO) point.
