Prediction of harvest efficiency in raspberry crops of differing maturity characteristics


, : Prediction of harvest efficiency in raspberry crops of differing maturity characteristics. Acta Horticulturae (60): 27-34

A mathematical model of the day-to-day development of the raspberry crop was constructed from estimates of the amount of fruit which ripens each day and of the rate of loss of ripe fruit as it becomes over-ripe. Efficiency characteristics of both hand and machine picking were included. The cumulative percentage of the crop harvested ripe, harvested green or lost due to natural wastage was compared with the potential crop.

Studies were conducted over 3 years to evaluate the effect of maturity at harvest (Year 1 and 2), pea content (Year 2) and pea variety (Magnus vs. Setchey, Year 3) on the nutritional quality of inter-cropped, spring-sown, pea/wheat bi-crop forages...

'Meeker' red raspberry (Rubus idaeus L.) fruit harvested at three maturity stages [inception (IN), red ripe (RR), and processing ripe (PR)] on four harvest dates at weekly intervals were held 0, 3, 6, and 9 days at 0.degree.

The dry matter (DM) content in the flesh of harvested avocado is quite variable, ranging from low DM (<20%), poor-tasting fruit that should be removed from commercial sale, to high DM (>35%) fruit that are potentially suitable for processing...

Feeding experiments with British Friesian cattle were conducted using dried lucerne cobs prepared from early or late 1st, 2nd cut or 3rd cut herbage. As intake of cobs decreased, the digestibility of OM (including cellulose) increased so that inta...

Three pea cultivars differing in maturity, cv. EC33866 (early), P-116 (medium) and T-163 (late), were grown in pots. The early cultivar recorded lower dry matter, CO2 exchange rate and lower yield. The harvest index (HI) was highest (44%) in this...
