No mechanization has been introduced for women dominated farm operations to reduce drudgery in work. Women do not get better results due to use of old/traditional implements. Therefore the major step in the present time is to introduce improved implements for performance of tasks. There is an immediate need to rectify the bias in designing of technologies for women. This book provides an in-depth knowledge on the use of technologies and in addition it made an attempt to describe the recommended dimensions of the technologies for particular task, its care and maintenance and its suitability to works.
