Abstract

This review examines the impacts of increasing cotton harvest rate and highlights implications for the JD7760. In particular, this review investigates why machine weight needs to be increased to meet consumer demand and evaluates the potential for soil compaction by looking at other industries. This information is complimented by perspective on the JD7760 cotton-picking system provided by Australian cotton growers.
