Title (EN) SEEDLING HARVESTING APPARATUS
(FR) DISPOSITIF D'ARRACHAGE DE SEMIS
Abstract:
(EN) A harvester (20) is provided. The harvester includes a frame (22) having selectively positionable wheels, a plant transport apparatus (24) disposed on the frame, and a seedling conveyor (26) positioned adjacent the plant transport apparatus and positioned to transfer seedlings along a conveyor axis that extends between the plant transport apparatus and a storage bin. The harvester also includes a root soil remover (28) positioned adjacent the seedling conveyor. The root soil remover includes a plurality of flexible probes selectively positioned during operation of the harvester such that at least one of the plurality of flexible probes is in functional contact with a root end of a seedling being transported by the seedling conveyor, wherein motion of the root soil remover is initiated by at least a portion of the seedling passing through the plurality of flexible probes.
(FR) L'invention concerne une arracheuse (20). L'arracheuse comprend une structure (22) comportant des roues sélectivement orientables, un appareil de transport de plante (24) placé sur la structure, et un convoyeur de semis (26) placé en position adjacente à l'appareil de transport de plante et positionné pour transférer les semis le long d'un axe du convoyeur qui s'étend entre l'appareil de transport de plante et une cellule de stockage. L'arracheuse comprend également un dispositif de nettoyage de racines (28) placé en position adjacente au convoyeur de semis. Le dispositif de nettoyage de racines comprend une pluralité de sondes flexibles positionnées de manière sélective pendant l'utilisation de l'arracheuse de sorte qu'au moins une de la pluralité de sondes flexibles soit en contact fonctionnel avec l'extrémité d'une racine d'un semis transporté par le convoyeur de semis, le mouvement du dispositif de nettoyage de racines étant amorcé par au moins une partie du semis traversant la pluralité de sondes flexibles.
