Harvesting Rice with a Scythe

"Using the scythe, we could easily manage to harvest between half to one acre of paddy in 6 hours of working thereby saving a considerable amount of time and effort."


Harvesting Paddy with a Scythe


  1. Why do you suggest that rice Can be harvested using scythe provided the rice is not fully ripe?

  2. An earlier post said that "a cradle scythe could successfully harvest paddy rice, as long as it wasn't too ripe." If the paddy rice is too ripe, the action of harvesting (with a scythe or with motorized equipment) tends to dislodge the grains, which fall to the ground.
