Conditions and possibilities for improving labour efficiency in apple harvest

Acta Horticulturae (77): 303-306
Conditions and possibilities for improving labour efficiency in apple harvest
Possibilities of increasing labour efficiency in apple picking were investigated because of the need to pick apples at an optimum time, and because of labour shortages in fruit farms. Efficiency of labour in apple picking is mainly determined by characteristics of the orchard and of the fruit, as well as by availability of machines and other aids, and organization and management.
