With labour shortages being a constant battle with UK growers, we have researched & sourced incredible machinery solutions for this ongoing issue.
On show at Fruit Focus will be the Air-jet Berry Harvester ideal for Blueberries, Raspberries, Blackberries and Blackcurrants. This innovative machine harvests soft fruits by air pulsations, allowing harvesting without damaging plants or berries.
Philip Mann at Bedstone Growers says how pleased he is with their harvester: "It has far surpassed our expectations and harvest quality of the fruit is very similar compared to hand pick, we estimate it has replaced 35 hand picking members of staff and we only require 4 operatives for the harvester, 1 driver, 2 changing crates and 1 taking fruit back to the cold store.”
Launching at Fruit Focus will be the brand-new MACH 4 TONY & TONY 8900 V. Built with ultra-compact hybrid hydrostatic mechanical transmission and minimum width of just 100cm; making them the must-have tractors for fruit growers.
The Kirkland team will also be available to discuss the UK’s first ever Driverless Sprayer! Launching late this summer, the AgBot can save you up to 80% on labour costs & 1/3 saving on fuel compared to a tractor! Visit us on stand 106 & come and get your free ice cream!
