Modelling a raspberry harvest: Effects of changing the starting date of, and the interval between, machine harvests


, : Modelling a raspberry harvest: Effects of changing the starting date of, and the interval between, machine harvests. Horticultural Research 21(1): 29-39

A raspberry harvest model was constructed from smoothed values for the daily changes in berry weight with age, the daily production of ripe fruit, the rate of loss of ripe fruit with age, and the changes with ripening in fruit acidity, fruit soluble solids and harvester efficiency. The model was used to simulate the effects of harvesting the red raspberry Malling Jewel at intervals of 2, 3 or 5 days, starting 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 or 14 days after the first fruits had ripened.
