Photographer's Note

Mechanical method of paddy threshing that involves the detachment of paddy kernels or grains from the panicle.

Threshing paddy in the field and transporting the grains in bags minimizes grain losses- an improved method over transporting paddy on stalk but the straw, if needed in the house, will have to be retrieved later. Sundrying of paddy may be done in the house yard instead of drying paddy on stalk in the field. Surplus paddy is usually sold fresh to traders or directly to rice mill entrepreneurs as dried paddy commands so little added value to make drying attractive to farmers.
