Harvesting by mashine was in CZ tested at bygones century (70th). Tests rekord were bad (high share of leaf, detritus of concrete column, losses of berries).
Lasting fall of worker in agriculture and vehement growth floricultural surfaces – vineyard (somewhere 19.000 hectare), requires complex rationalization and mechanization of all works stages which needs needlework. Harvisting in viniculture needs perhaps 30% of all working time (200–250 o‘clock on 1 hectare). Incidence thereof begun most of bigger producers in our country with mechanical harvisting. Technical performance of this machines turn up. There are not available data about costs and their work quality.
The benefit deal with classification of mechanical harvesting (juice adhering, berries lost, damage of vineyard) transaction by the help of semi-trailer and self-propelled harvesters.
