Khanh Hoa farmer invents bean-shelling machine

A 60-year-old farmer in Khanh Hoa Province has invented a machine that strips mung bean and broad bean from their pods.

Nguyen Tan Bien’s machine, made from iron bars and a 1,500 watt motor, can shell 100 kilograms of mung bean or 70 kilograms of broad bean in an hour.

Mr.Bien said most farmers can afford the machine since it cost just around VND2 million.

He has sent his invention to the province’s Technological Creations Contest this year.
