On farm innovations that increase production modifying grower practice to suit a new harvester - allen morgan and mossimo monchiero

  1. 1. 6th INTERNATIONAL MACADAMIA SYMPOSIUMSOFITEL BRISBANE CENTRAL BRISBANE, QUEENSLAND AUSTRALIA18-20 SEPTEMBER 2012 Hosted by the Australian Macadamia Society Platinum Sponsor Monchiero A SOLID REPUTATION OF QUALITY
  2. 2. Quality is a critical factor to meet market demand and enhance profitability. Faster Harvesting “Harvest frequency has a strong relationship to the quality offor Quality Nuts NIS” (*) Best practices for increasing growers profitability, competitiveness, and sustainability. On-farm innovations that increase productivity and return. (*) The Australian Macadamia Industry Strategic Plan 2009- 2014 Exclusive technology for harvesting nuts
  3. 3. Quality is a critical factor to meet market demand and enhance profitability. Faster Harvesting “Harvest frequency has a strong relationship to the quality of NIS”for Quality Nuts (*) Product quality and consistency is critical to the market acceptance of any food but particularly for premium products such as Macadamias. Processing companies need a high level of quality to avoid: •Loss of customers •Freight costs •Reprocessing •Product recall (*) The Australian Macadamia Industry Strategic Plan 2009- 2014 Exclusive technology for harvesting nuts
  4. 4. Quality is a critical factor to meet market demand and enhance profitability. Faster Harvesting “Harvest frequency has a strong relationship to the quality of NIS”for Quality Nuts (*) What does quality mean for growers payments? Faster return from investments !!! A direct return in $ per tonne An additional return in reduced shed losses (*) The Australian Macadamia Industry Strategic Plan 2009- 2014 Exclusive technology for harvesting nuts
  5. 5. Quality is a critical factor to meet market demand and enhance profitability. Faster Harvesting “Harvest frequency has a strong relationship to the quality of NIS” (*)for Quality Nuts How to reach a better quality in the field With normal fingerwheel harvesters you have some choices: •Doing several passes to avoid nuts staying on the ground, in a single pass this type of harvester can pick-up only 60 to 90% of the nuts, depending on the quantity of nuts on the ground. •Doing just one pass, to increase the harvesting frequency and avoid most of the nuts staying on the ground for more time •Purchase more fingerwheel type machines, To have at the same time, more passes and more frequency. (*) The Australian Macadamia Industry Strategic Plan 2009- 2014 Exclusive technology for harvesting nuts
  6. 6. PRODUCTIVITY THROUGH INNOVATION “Industry needs to perform at its constant best,...investing in Faster innovation to improve productivity and reduce costs” (*) Harvestingfor Quality Nuts Frequent Harvesting But, does more frequent harvesting pay ? • Harvest frequency has a direct relationship to the quality of nut-in -shell. • Every nut left on the ground not harvested, can be a problem in the next harvest, just some weeks later. • On the other hand the report “A summary of Mac Man Best practice group 2001-2007”, found that a return on a second pass is: $0,00 (*) The Australian Macadamia Industry Strategic Plan 2009- 2014 Exclusive technology for harvesting nuts
  7. 7. PRODUCTIVITY THROUGH INNOVATION “Industry needs to perform at its constant best,...investing in Faster innovation to improve productivity and reduce costs” (*) Harvestingfor Quality Nuts Is there a new answer ? How can we have more passes and frequency ?• With a faster single pass harvester.• With a harvester having a better pick-up ratio.• With a one man machine.• With a large volume, fast cleaning process.• With one of our very fast harvesters you can harvest up to 99% ofthe nuts in just one pass and with a single machine, and one driver. (*) The Australian Macadamia Industry Strategic Plan 2009- 2014 Exclusive technology for harvesting nuts
  8. 8. PRODUCTIVITY THROUGH INNOVATION “Industry needs to perform at its constant best,...investing in Faster innovation to improve productivity and reduce costs” (*) Harvestingfor Quality Nuts Faster HarvestingIncreasing the harvesting speed can giveyou several benefits:• Less fuel consumption per Hectare• Give you the opportunity to harvest more frequently• Better quality nuts• Less labor costs• More efficiency• More productivity• The opportunity of harvesting just before an expected rainfall event• More revenue (*) The Australian Macadamia Industry Strategic Plan 2009- 2014 Exclusive technology for harvesting nuts
  9. 9. BUILDING PROFITABILITY “Frequent harvesting (less than or equal to every 4 weeks on average) Faster gave a mean sound kernel recovery (SKR) of 34.2%, instead than Harvesting 31.6%” (*)for Quality Nuts MORE REVENUE IN ONE SINGLE PASS For a 100 t farm, higher average yearly revenue of $37250 and lower costs up to $9500 : • The average 2.6% difference in SKR result in a difference of $260 per tonne, that for a 100t farm means $26,000 more revenue per year (**) Reduced shed losses. Frequent harvests result in shed reject levels of 4.6%, while longer harvest intervals result in reject levels of 8.3%, and this means up to $11,250 more revenue for the grower (**) (*) The Australian Macadamia Industry Strategic Plan 2009-2014 (**) MC03008 Adoption of quality management systems in macadamia $$$$$ Exclusive technology for harvesting nuts
  10. 10. BUILDING PROFITABILITY “Frequent harvesting (less than or equal to every 4 weeks on average) Faster gave a mean sound kernel recovery (SKR) of 34.2%, instead than Harvesting 31.6%” (*)for Quality Nuts MORE REVENUE IN ONE SINGLE PASS For a 100 t farm, higher average yearly revenue of $37,250 and lower costs up to $9,500 : • No need to pass again on the same row to reach a satisfactory crop. • Less operation hours: less fuel consumption, less oil changes, etc, with an average savings of $3000 /year for a 100 t farm • Reduced manpower: up to one third less hours needed (up to $5,000 /year saved) • Less maintenance and replacement of wearing parts: lower costs and less loss of time. Average consumption/season of wearing parts of a Monchiero machine in a 100 t farm is less than $500, with a saving of $1,500 (*) The Australian Macadamia Industry Strategic Plan 2009-2014 (**) MC03008 Adoption of quality management systems in macadamia $$$$$ Exclusive technology for harvesting nuts
  11. 11. BUILDING GROWER SUSTAINABILITY “Adhering to production systems that are considered environmentally Faster sound is essential to access certain markets, and most retailers and Harvesting importers have strict quality specifications on both the quality of thefor Quality Nuts product and the quality of production process. (*) BEST HARVESTING PRACTISES FOR ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION Our harvesting machines are designed for maximum efficiency and minimum environmental impact: •One single pass, one single machine, one single engine: lower fuel consumption, less emissions •Eco functions: fuel consumption optimisation •Maneuverability in low plantations with minimal damage to the branches •Wide-section and low ground impact tires: no danger of damaging the orchard, not even in conditions of very high levels of humidity (*) The Australian Macadamia Industry Strategic Plan 2009-2014 Exclusive technology for harvesting nuts
