Frequency response of Valencia oranges to selective harvesting by vibration
Citrus mechanical harvesting has been investigated since the 1960’s. Even though mechanical harvesting could significantly lower production costs, the implementation by the private sector has been slow. The current harvesting ...
Fomento del trabajo fuera del aula con evaluación entre pares y tutorías integrales de grupo
Se parte de la detección de una serie de carencias en la adquisición de conocimientos en la asignatura Motores y Máquinas de 2.º curso del Grado en Ingeniería Agroalimentaria y del Medio Rural. Para dirigir y motivar al ...
Olive Crown Porosity Measurement Based on Radiation Transmittance: An Assessment of Pruning Effect
Crown porosity influences radiation interception, air movement through the fruit orchard, spray penetration, and harvesting operation in fruit crops. The aim of the present study was to develop an accurate and reliable ...
Olive Actual “on Year” Yield Forecast Tool Based on the Tree Canopy Geometry Using UAS Imagery
Olive has a notable importance in countries of Mediterranean basin and its profitability depends on several factors such as actual yield, production cost or product price. Actual “on year” Yield (AY) is production (kg ...
Fruit abscission pattern of ‘Valencia’ orange with canopy shaker system
Fruit detachment can occur due to natural causes or be mechanically performed by a combination of mechanical stresses that cause tissue breakage in the plant. Forced abscission should not coincide with natural abscission ...
Vibration analysis of the fruit detachment process in late-season ‘Valencia’ orange with canopy shaker technology
The mechanical harvesting of juice oranges can be achieved by the application of forced vibration to the tree canopy to detach fruit. Among the available harvesting technologies, canopy shaker systems have the advantage ...
Vibration Monitoring of the Mechanical Harvesting of Citrus to Improve Fruit Detachment Efficiency
The introduction of a mechanical harvesting process for oranges can contribute to enhancing farm profitability and reducing labour dependency. The objective of this work is to determine the spread of the vibration in citrus ...
