One or several single trees selected. Biomass per tree collected manually and weighted
Per parcel (e.g. 100m2) in bags
One or several parcels selected. Each parcel several trees. Biomass per parcel collected manually and weighted
Per several rows (or in whole field)
On large parcel, or a whole field is selected. Biomass collected and loaded to a truck. Weight of the load taken ia a scale for trucks
Total Area measured (m2) : 12000
Ammount of prunings obtained (t/ha)Specify the tonnes per hectare of prunings collected from the crop
Losses of prunings that weren't harvested (t/ha)
How many days the prunings were on soil before measuring (days)
Moisture content (%)Specify the moisture content (%) of the biomass collected if available

It is the first demonstartion performed at 12/3/2018 by CERTH and INASO-PASEGES in the region of Agrinio.
For the needs of this demonstartion 1.2 ha of kiwi prunings were collected with the FACMA machinery. It is recorded that for these 1.2 ha, 3 trucks were needed. Every truck could transport prunings from 4 lines. It is also recorded that the tractor velocity was 1.3 km/hr and that 50 lt of oil were consumed for the tractor's needs.
An average of a line's pass was 9 minutes while it needed only 4 minutes to complete a pass of 100m.
