Current prospects for the introduction of mechanical harvesters



Current prospects for the introduction of mechanical harvesters



JAST Journal Jamaican Association of Sugar Technologists 49: 22-27



The introduction of mechanical harvesters for sugarcane in the Jamaican sugar industry is considered. An economic analysis of 3 mechanical systems was made and compared with the current manual system using the following parameters; cost of systems, potential "kill" to delivery times, effect on overall harvesting throughput, the likely agronomic impact of mechanized harvesting. Production rates for different machines are given, choice of machine and the implications for labour are discussed.
