WSU graduate students demonstrate a shake-and-catch system for cherry harvesting.
The public will have an opportunity to see what’s new in automated and precision farming technologies at the second annual Center for Precision and Automated Agricultural Systems Expo.
The free event will take place October 8 from 1–3 p.m. at Washington State University’s Irrigated Agriculture Research and Extension Center in Prosser.
The focus will be on technologies aimed at developing and improving harvesting technologies, labor management systems, input delivery systems, and worksite safety.
Technologies on view will include:
• a blossom thinning device
• shake-and-catch cherry harvesting
• 3D sensor technology
• over-the-row sensor platforms
• bin-dog technology
• a solid-set canopy delivery system and more.
