Advantages of Air Jet harvesting over mechanical harvesting

Mechanical berry harvesters with mechanical shaking technology with percussion system are represented on the world markets. With respect to mechanical shaking, KOKAN 500S offers air shaking and purification of fruits, which has many advantages:

  • Multi-functional harvester with friendly adjustment operating parameters for harvesting wide range of berry fruits including Blueberries, Raspberries, Blackberries, Black Currants and Haskap;
  • Selective harvesting – harvesting mature fruits only;
  • Capability of harvesting from the beginning of harvesting season, when there is a greater number of immature than ripe fruits;
  • Ability to harvest the same row from day to day without fear of trauma or damage to the plant;
  • Do not come to break gender branches and reduce the yield;
  • Air Jet Technology with technology of soft berry drops (pneumatic pillows) allows mechanically blueberry harvesting for the fresh market at the level of manual harvesting quality.

Advantages of Air Jet harvesting over manual picking

Today, picking berries in our country and in the world is mostly done manually, which requires considerable labor costs and prevents the rapid fruit harvesting. KOKAN 500S, in addition to more reliable and efficient harvesting, has other significant advantages over manual picking:

  • It replaces up to 200 pickers a day;
  • Meets Food Safety Standards (HACCP);
  • Increases yield in kilograms;
  • It prevents the onset and development of the disease;
  • It enables planting to be extended to economic viability;
  • Increases dry matter content by 50% over hand-picked fruits.
