A synopsis of mechanical harvesting of Rubus in Oregon

, : A synopsis of mechanical harvesting of Rubus in Oregon. Acta Horticulturae (60): 95-98

About 1600 ha of cane berries were harvested mechanically in Oregon in 1975. A single machine was used to harvest several types of berries because of different berry maturities. The most economic units for black raspberries, blackberries and red raspberries were 20, 12-15 and 10 ha, respectively. The machine operator was one of the most important controllable variables in obtaining the best quality of harvested fruit.

The load required to separate a red raspberry fruit from its receptacle, here termed the fruit retention strength (FRS), was measured on berries at increasing stages of ripeness. The FRS decreased from about 300 g for underripe berries to 25 g for...
