Engineers at State College Building Cabbage Harvester

Record #:
About 9800 acres of cabbage, valued at $2 million, were grown in North Carolina in 1961. But there has been difficulty for some cabbage growers in getting sufficient hand labor, about 160 man-hours now required to produce an acre of cabbage. Therefore, agricultural engineers at North Carolina State College are developing a mechanical harvester that should cut the number of hours required to produce cabbage.
