Tsering has suggested a low cost device for plucking of sea buckthorn fruits, which otherwise are hand plucked manually. People face great difficulty to harvest fruits due to its thorny branches. Many a times their hands get injured as well. A lot of fruits remain un-harvested due to failure to reach them by hands. This device can not only be easy to handle and time saving for them, but also reduces the wastage of fruits too.
