Labour, mechanization efficiency in stone fruit harvesting


Acta Horticulturae (77): 307-314
Labour, mechanization efficiency in stone fruit harvesting
Increased demand for stone fruits has led to mechanization of the harvesting process. This study evaluated circumstances in which different harvesters could be effectively used. Two machines of different output were evaluated in terms of: cost and output/ha., size of orchard and range of cvs., length of picking time, and working hours/year.
