University of California Davis, Fruit and Nut Research and Information Website

The University of California Davis, Fruit and Nut Research and Information website focuses on different fruit and nut crops grown in California and provides production management and harvesting information. Many of these crops are now harvested mechanically including table olives. Research on the olive harvesting machines, like the Florida citrus, was ongoing for many years (2006-2010) looking at many of the same objectives. Tree canopy preparation, reduction of tree and fruit damage, and developing abscission compounds to name a few. To learn more about their research projects, the outcomes and how the California olive industry adapted to mechanical harvesting you can visit their website at http://ucanr.edu/sites/mecholive/.University of California Davis Fruit and Nut Research and Information
