The agriculture sector is rapidly progressing towards the mechanization. Taking in to consideration the need of doubling the farmer’s income as well as reduction in the human drudgery the demand for agriculture mechanization is increasing day by day. Threshing is of the most laborious agriculture operation which required lots of human as well as animal energy. Still there are lots of agriculture crops which are threshed manually or with animal power. The engineering properties of the crops are very important when works on the machination of threshing. Hence, keeping in view the above points the present study was carried out for determining the engineering properties of Soybean, Black Gram and Rice likes grin size, spericity, moisture content...etc. It was clear from the study that the engineering properties vary from crop to crop. The grin size was observed maximum in case of soyabean while the value of some other properties was less than other crops. The maximum angle of repose was found in case of paddy. The details comparison of engineering properties is done in this paper.

Keywords: Mechanization, Engineering Prosperities, Threshing
