The concept of timeliness recognizes that there is an optimum time to perform certain crop production operations from planting through to harvesting. If one or more of these operations is performed too early or too late, a timeliness penalty is likely to accrue, that is, yield and/or the quality of the crop is diminished, yielding a lower price to the farmer. For example, the ideal time to harvest grain is when the crop is ripe and the moisture is low (see also, Maintaining Working Conditions and Operation of Machinery).
Thus mechanical milling is even more widespread than mechanical threshing. But where the green revolution raised wages and increased harvests (as in Indian Punjab, Philippines, and central Thailand), the small threshers were rapidly adopted once efficient designs were available.
