Our teams goal for this project was to create a pigeonpea thresher to help Guatemalan farmers. A pigeonpea thresher is a device that is used to remove pigeonpea from its pod. Currently, Guatemalan farmers do this difficult task by hand. By creating a thresher, pigeonpea yield will increase significantly. With this device, farmers can increase their income and fight malnutrition.
