Fruit interception when harvesting by shaking

Fruit interception when harvesting by shaking

Frutticoltura 36(6): 15-18

Methods of harvesting fruit by shaking are reviewed and discussed. A prototype tractor-drawn machine designed to collect fruits after shaking consists of 4 intercepting levels inclined at 25 deg from the horizontal and vertically spaced at 0.60 m. Each level consists of 17 tubular elements 1.30 m long which can be inflated to retain and guide fruits to a collecting channel and so to a moving belt connected to the tractor power take-off.
