Abstract

Different harvest machines can be applied in different agronomic situations and groves, and it is essential to identify suitable parameters to compare the results.To assess the operational capability of the yard productivity the used parameter is the harvesting yard productivity (HYP) expressed as kg man-1 hour-1, but it provides little information about yard/plant relationship or about the agronomic tool able to improve the suitability of the use. Two different indexes are suggested, the harvest speed (SCH) as m3 of vegetation “harvested” in a definite interval of time, and the production efficiency of canopy (CPE), as kg m-3 of vegetation.With them the linkage between the results with “traditional”, “intensive” and “superintensive” training systems became more clear and some considerations on the needs to improve the productivity of olive groves are made.[...]
