Development of small limb shakers for cherries (Part 1). Improvement and field testing of the shaker

Development of small limb shakers for cherries (Part 1). Improvement and field testing of the shaker

Journal of the Japanese Society of Agricultural Machinery 59(1): 99-107

A cherry (Prunus avium) harvesting system in which small limbs are vibrated by a small shaker was studied. A limb with unripe fruits was vibrated by a shaker of 8 cm stroke and 13 Hz frequency. The harvesting percentage was high and most of the fallen fruits retained their stems. The fruits, processed immediately after harvesting, had little damage.
