Özet

In this research, olives were harvested by four different methods (wood rake, wood stick, mechanical bough shaker + wood stick and electronic harvesting rake + wood stick) and an effort was made to determine their effect on olive yield. From the data obtained during a two year period, the method with the highest work capacity was determined to be the third method (mechanical bough shaker + wood stick), and the lowest work capacity was obtained from the first method (wood rake). When the average work capacities for two years are examined, the highest work capacity was obtained for the 3rd method (51.53 kg/man hour), followed by the 2nd method (31.43 kg/man hour), 4th method (28.01 kg/man hour) and the 1st method (19.19 kg/man hour), respectively. When the yield averages for two years are examined, the highest yield was obtained for the 3rd method (21.64 kg), followed by the 4th method (14.06 kg), 2nd method (13.64 kg) and 1st method (19.19 kg), respectively.
