Abstract:
ABSTRACT The challenge faced in harvesting particular fruit crops is one of the contributors to low production levels seen in a small tropical developing country. As such, the fruits are being imported and their price on the local market has increased. As part of a solution, this work looked at presenting a mechanical fruit picking device which could assist in the reaping process. Requirements for the device were gathered from local farmers and the device was designed, built and tested for various fruit crops. The testing showed good results with citrus, avocado, sapodilla and five fingers. Keywords: Fruit picker, citrus, avocado, Trinidad.
