AbstractCertain conditions resulting from tilling, bed shaping, planting, thinning, and cultivating practices may cause lettuce heads to develop off center—which leads the U. C. mechanical selective lettuce harvester to “believe” that the heads are not ready to harvest, or affects the harvester's ability to cut the heads accurately.
