A mechanical harvester for greens


, : A mechanical harvester for greens. American Vegetable Grower 29(9): 52

A prototype harvester developed at Michigan State University, rear-mounted on a 60 hp tractor with hydrostatic drive, was field-tested. The machine cuts, bunches and ties the leaves. Bunches produced were more uniform in size than hand-harvested greens and equal in quality. Work rates with a crew of 3 were only slightly better on a worker-hour basis than hand-harvesting.
