    Abstract

    Semi-automation has been introduced into the process of seeding mussels for mussel farming by the design and development of a mussel seeder. The seeder, which has an estimated cost of Rs. 2500, was successfully field tested and demonstrated to mussel farmers in Kerala. The chief advantages of the seeder are reduction in time taken for seeding resulting in increased efficiency and lower labour costs and reduction in physical strain during the process.
