Harvesting work can be performed by the following ways

  1. Slicing work with a sharp tool.
  2. Splitting action with a sharp serrated edge.

  4. Two elements of a scissors-type performance.

These actions can be done with manual and automatic harvesting. If we see an example of a manual then slicing and tearing action is the best fit. Here are other ways of harvesting.
