Max Armstrong offers a look at a new machine designed to harvest strawberries without labor. The aim is to revolutionize harvest of this important fruit and it's going to get a true test with the fall Florida strawberry harvest. The driver is the falling number of farm laborers available to do the work.
Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
