2.UC-Blackwelder Tomato Harvester

Description: This film by Blackwelder Manufacturing Company Records shows several versions of UC Blackwelder tomato harvesting in action. In 1949, UC Davis agricultural engineer Coby Lorenzen and UC Davis vegetable crops researcher Jack Hanna began work on developing a harvester and a tomato variety that could withstand the rigors of mechanical picking. During the 1950s, the UC Davis team refined the experimental harvester and in 1959, Blackwelder Manufacturing of Rio Vista, California commercialized the design. The tomato harvester is said to have saved California's processed tomato industry in the 1960s. The film includes footage of harvesters and tomatoes from the farm; Tomatoes traveling on inspection conveyor belts in front of machine-mounted human sorters; And fruit is being distributed in cans. It also includes a short clip, which shows the difference between tomatoes sliced ​​by the blackweller machine.
