Blueberry farmers currently use mechanical berry harvesters that are losing up to 20% of their total yield. This is equivalent to up to $30,000 per harvest. Divert is a solution that attaches onto existing harvesters to reduce their losses by at least 50%. A design for the attachment has been created and tested using a harvester model and will move towards testing and implementation on harvester machines.
