Proper levels of plant nutrients are necessary to give the potential for the high yields that are needed when mechanical harvesting equipment is employed. Soil and leaf tests can reveal nutrients that might be deficient. Annual applications of nitrogen are required to maintain adequate levels. Low levels may cause some fruit species to set small numbers of fruit buds for the next year's crop even if the current crop load is normal. Excessive levels of nitrogen can cause poor color, soft fruit, small sized fruit, irregular ripening of fruits on the same tree, and uneven ripening on a single fruit.
Most multi worker positioners are on a four-wheel chassis designed to travel parallel to rows of trees. Operation in conventional plantings requires lateral movement mechanisms to enable access to the entire tree. An approach gaining in popularity uses high-density trees pruned in the shape of narrow hedgerows. A multilevel positioner travels along the row while workers pick the fruit accessible from their level. Conveyors and other materials-handling methods deliver the fruit from each worker to a centralized container.
G. WOODROOF estimated income from machine harvest. The risks associated with hand harvest, such as the unavailability of labor, can influence decisions, but machine systems are usually not adopted until there is a clear economic advantage. Mechanically harvested crops are often less valuable on a per unit basis than are hand-harvested crops. This difference must be compensated for by greater yields and/or lower harvesting costs possible with machine harvest. Kepner et al. (1978) given an equation for calculating the' 'breakeven crop-value ratio" (R) to help growers estimate the price a mechanically harvested crop must bring to break even with higher prices from manually harvested fruit: R=l_ H - M G where H is the total hand-harvesting costs in dollars/crop ha/year; M the total mechanical-harvesting costs in dollars/year; and G the gross income or crop value for hand-harvested crop in dollars/ha.
