A mechanical harvester for passionfruit in Australia

, : A mechanical harvester for passionfruit in Australia. Agricultural Engineering Australia 9(2): 18-22

The machine consists of a beater, an inclined plane formed of 6 steel plates to permit operation on undulating ground, an elevator belt and a cross-conveyor belt. Beater, elevator and cross conveyor are ground driven and power requirement is low (4 hp on gentle slopes).

High concentrations of interleukin-6 (IL-6) have been demonstrated in amniotic fluid (AF) from women with intra-amniotic infection. Recent studies have reported that IL-6 levels in AF were related to an increase in neonatal morbidity; moreover, hi...
