For these reasons, manual harvest methods are preferable to mechanical methods for growers with low production volumes. A major disadvantage of manual harvest is the limited output of workers. In addition, worker output has experienced a 30% decline in the past 30 years. Worker output is affected by human endurance, skill level, physical strength and speed, environmental conditions, fruit accessibility, fruit density, and worker incentive. Even when optimum conditions are present, the output possible with manual harvesting is far less than is common with mechanical-harvesting equipment.

Search theory also indicates that search times decrease as luminance from the object increases. Visual detection of fruit is affected by individual differences in acuity, color sensitivity, and perception of size and distance. There are several types of visual acuity; however, most deal with the resolution of black and white detail. Visual targets (eye charts) measure minimum separable 28 S. E. PRUSSIA AND J. G. WOODROOF FIG. 1.

Commercial grape-harvesting machines can be classified into three categories: cane shakers, trunk shakes, and combined cane/truck shakers. With a cane shaker, bunches and individual grapes are removed by direct contact between the vibrating rods and the vine canopy. With trunk shakers, which have recently been introduced for grapes, bars in the shape of skiis vibrate back and forth in unison as they pass both sides of the trunk.
