Mechanical harvesting of processed peaches



Mechanical harvesting of processed peaches



Applied Engineering In Agriculture: 6, 723-729



Peach harvesting for processing is done by hand in Spain, but it is expensive. Mechanical harvesting is one way to reduce costs, but to be fully accepted it is necessary to obtain a product of similar quality to that of hand harvesting. The purpose of this research was to design, construct, and test catching systems to pick the peaches detached from the trees by shaking with hand-held shakers. The experiments were carried out on a crop of peaches <i>Caterina</i>.
