C. T. Shi
The means of the mechanization culture of carrot was designing the tractor for multiple use. One of the purpose was using the tractor for land-preparation, ridging and sowing of carrot in one time. The other was using the attachments of tractor such as digging and collecting machines to substitute man labors for harvesting.
The former wages comparison between man labor and machine sowing (Table 1), machines may saving NT$3,200 (41.5%) per hectare, and the latter. Profit comparison between man labor and machine (Table 2) may saving NT$ 1,600 (18.5%) per hectare with digging and collecting at the same time, and saving NT$3,760 (43.5%) per hectare for using the digging attachment only.
