A new model of tomato harvester is working in the fields of Manas County, Changji Prefecture, Northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, on Thursday. Through color resolution system, the machine picks red ripe tomatoes and removes the green immature ones, which improves the efficiency.
A harvester like this can cover 100 mu (about 666,67 square meters) of land a day, equivalent to the workload of 150 people. It also reduces labor cost of 400 yuan (nearly $62) per mu. The natural environment of Manas county is suitable for the cultivation of high-quality tomatoes.
