KOKAN Visit This August

This August we were lucky enough to have the KOKAN Blueberry Harvester team visit us! It was great to have the team vising Fruit Growers around the UK demoing the impressive Air-jet Berry Harvester...

This innovative machine harvests blueberries by air pulsations, shaking green mass by air pulsation of controlled speed/intensity allows harvesting without damaging plants or berries. This Multi-functional harvester is ideal for a wide range of soft fruits including Blueberries, Raspberries, Blackberries and Black Currants. the KOKAN500S offers air shaking and the purifying of fruits which ensures:
• Selective harvesting – harvesting mature fruits only;
• Do not come to break gender branches and reduce the yield;
• Capability of harvesting from the beginning of harvesting season, when there is a greater number of immature than ripe fruits;
• Ability to harvest the same row from day to day without fear of trauma or damage to the plant;
• Do not come to break gender branches and reduce the yield;
• Air Jet Technology with technology of soft berry drops (pneumatic pillows) allows mechanically blueberry harvesting for the fresh market at the level of manual harvesting quality.
