Abstract

Research started in 1961 by agricultural engineers of USDA and University of California has led to commercial acceptance of mechanical harvesting methods with resulting labor and cost savings for California date growers. About 65% of the 1965–66 date crop is expected to be harvested with the aid of various mechanical systems that can reduce labor requirements from 50 to 80%, as compared with conventional hand picking.
