  1. 1. EVALUATION OF MACHINE VS. HAND – HARVESTED CHARDONNAY
  2. 2. Index <ul><li>Introduction </li></ul><ul><li>Harvest with machine </li></ul><ul><li>Manually harvested grape </li></ul><ul><li>Economic analysis </li></ul><ul><li>Discussion </li></ul><ul><li>Conclusion </li></ul>
  3. 3. Introduction <ul><li>A few years ago  grape was harvested manually. </li></ul><ul><li>Nowadays  farms have been mechanized and modernized. </li></ul><ul><li>Reasons: </li></ul><ul><li>- adaptation to offer and demand </li></ul><ul><li>- shortage of qualified hands labor </li></ul><ul><li>- reduction of costs  maximize benefits </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>This article shows: </li></ul><ul><li>- The process in all stages. </li></ul><ul><li>- Difference between mechanic and manual. </li></ul><ul><li>- Economic impact of both types. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Harvest with machine <ul><li>Advantages: </li></ul><ul><li>- Does not depend on hand labor. </li></ul><ul><li>- It reduces the costs of production. </li></ul><ul><li>- It decrease the quantity of grape  must </li></ul><ul><li>- Transport to warehouse is faster. </li></ul><ul><li>- It's possible to avoid fraud . </li></ul>
  6. 6. Harvest with machine <ul><li>Disadvantages: </li></ul><ul><li>- The grape is more damaged </li></ul><ul><li>- The leaves are also more damaged </li></ul><ul><li>- It is more pollutant </li></ul><ul><li>- After 48 hours, this wine has worse quality </li></ul>
  7. 7. Manually harvested grape <ul><li>Advantages: </li></ul><ul><li>- The grape is less damaged </li></ul><ul><li>- The vineyards are not damaged </li></ul><ul><li>- It is less pollutant </li></ul><ul><li>- After 48 hours, this wine has better quality </li></ul>
  8. 8. Manually harvested grape <ul><li>Disadvantages: </li></ul><ul><li>- It depends on hand labor. </li></ul><ul><li>- It increases production costs. </li></ul><ul><li>- Increases the quantity of grape  must </li></ul><ul><li>- Grape harvest is slow. 2 problems: </li></ul><ul><li>1 – The moment of maturing. </li></ul><ul><li>2 – There can be problems with transport. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Economic analysis <ul><li>It depends on many factors: </li></ul><ul><li>1 – Vineyard location. </li></ul><ul><li>2 – Value of the crop. </li></ul><ul><li>3 – Cost of hands labor </li></ul><ul><li>4 – Efficiency of mechanical fruit removal </li></ul><ul><li>5 – Recovery and transport. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Discussion <ul><li>More stem content in hand harvested. </li></ul><ul><li>More unharvested fruit in mechanized grape harvest. </li></ul><ul><li>With machine there are more damages. </li></ul><ul><li>Manually, the quality of grapes is worse. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Conclusion <ul><li>In conclusion, mechanized harvesting is worth it because even though there more last in juice, the cost off the operation is lower. </li></ul>
