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.
Different crops vary widely, however, in the type of labor required-that is, in their power- and control-intensity. Harvesting of root crops is probably the most power-intensive, although it still requires significan control. At the other extreme, cotton, fruit, and vegetables require intensive control: in the case of apples, the threat of damage is so large that their harvesting has still not been successfully mechanized.
