The task has been done at ‘Ladang Sri Mendapat 2’ with palms of 25 years old by using 40 ft. pole with a sickle attached at the end of it. The average bunch weight was about 22kg and an assumption was made by the supervisor that the harvester can harvest 1.5 mt of FFB. The next task was done at ‘Ladang Lembah Kesang1’ for 3 years old palms by using 5 - 7 inch chisel as shown in Figure 2.8. The revenue calculation of FFB yield are shown in Table 2.15. Figure 2.8 : Supervisor shows the way of harvesting bunches at 3 years old palm Table 2.15 : Revenue of FFB yield Average bunches 55 Average palms 14 Average bunch weight / kg 3.3 Total weight harvested (mt) / worker 3.3 kg x 55 bunches = 181.5 kg / 1000 mt = 0.18 mt/worker Number of workers 3 Total weight harvested (mt) / 3 workers 0.18 mt x 3 = 0.54 mt Duration for each harvesting round (minutes) 15 Harvesting rounds / hour 60 minutes/15 minutes = 4 times/hour Working hours / day 4 hours/day x 4 times/hour x 0.54 mt = 8.64 mt Price / mt RM70 Total price RM70 x 8.64 mt = RM604.80 2.1.7.
