Olive growers have had increasing difficulty. in getting their crops harvested by conventional hand-picking methods, not only in California but also in Spain and Italy. Over the past 30 years, many University of California workers have participated in research to develop mechanical harvesting of olives in California. Intensive research has also been conducted in Spain and Italy.
