The study was taken up through ‘On Farm Testing’ (OFT) in Dharwad district of Karnataka state, with an objective to assess the ergonomic cost of groundnut pod stripping with modified stripper over existing stripper and conventional methods. Sixty farmers and farm women from different villages were selected under the domain of Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Saidapur farm, Dharwad. With regard to modified KVK Dharwad Model, stripped clean pods passed through a sieve where mud and small pods separated. Nearly 50-60 per cent of labour cost and number of labours can be saved through KVK, Dharwad modified stripper when compared to other two conventional methods. More than 85 per cent of farmers /farm women accepted the model because of its low weight and efficiency. The Stripper was highly acceptable with respect to its ease by 93.33 per cent and moderately acceptable by 6.67 per cent. Nearly 50 to 60 per cent of the stripping cost could be reduced over to that of manual.
