Experiences of trials with Joonas raspberry harvester in Hungary in 1987

Experiences of trials with Joonas raspberry harvester in Hungary in 1987

Erwerbsobstbau 30(4): 110-112

Details are given of the performance of the mechanical harvesters Joonas, Pattenden and U-445 HCP which were tested on raspberries in 1981-86. Joonas was selected for trials with the cultivars Willamette, Malling Exploit and Malling Delight. Harvest losses of Willamette were 16-24% (less than 20% with careful harvesting) compared with >40% with the other 2 cultivars. The mechanically harvested fruit was of suitable quality for processing, and the proportion of damaged canes was <5%.
