Over the Top Citrus Harvesting Equipment for Process Market Fruit in High Density Citrus Groves
In summary, Phase I of this project will seek to establish feasibility of the mass harvesting system for high density grove through scaled prototype testing and to develop a functional design concept of the Over the Top Platform, while Phase II will fully develop the Geo-Spider OTP prototype mounted with the mass harvesting system and further validate a full scale mass harvesting. The Geo-Spider, which will have mass harvesting capability and other cultivation functions, will have a significant market advantage over other manufacturer products and thus should be highly attractive to both large citrus growers and custom production and harvesting companies.
