There are losses of production due to the oil palm field’s material handling. Activities that may raise the losses are harvesting and transportation, which may cause bruises and damage to fruit.
Leftover fruits happened on FFB within material handling, start from FFB falling when harvested, loading up to the truck bin, and transporting from field to loading ramp. Unmonitored leftover fruits properly cause significant losses.
Using EPCS the leftover fruit can be monitored and counted so that it can be loaded up to the truck bin and transporting from the field to the loading ramp immediately.
