Hard Row to Hoe: Cost of Production for Tabletop and Robot Picking in the LA Times

I got some nice quotes in today's LA Times article about technological advances in strawberries, including robot picking and tabletop production. Again, my thesis is that these enhancements are pretty spendy, and for the time being not feasible if one is looking for a positive return.

Some good discussion by the people from Tortuga about managing robot picking, including subscriptions to the machines and how to keep the machines up and running at all times.

Have a look:
