The most common and cost-effective berry crop in the Russian Federation is strawberry garden. A feature of the cultivation of this crop is the increased labor costs, which reach up to 2000 people·h/ha, a large share of which is accounted for by manual harvesting operations. In this connection, the creation and use of an electric drive platform for the cultivation and harvesting of strawberries on an industrial plantation will significantly reduce labor costs, increase productivity and reduce the degree of labor fatigue in gardening. As a result of the conducted research, data on the effectiveness of the use of an electric drive platform for the operation of harvesting strawberries in the conditions of an industrial plantation of “ Sovhoz imeni Lenina”, so the productivity of harvesting strawberries increased by an average of 34.2%. The quality of the technological process of harvesting berries for the entire period of use of the platform was at the level of the usual manual harvesting. The completeness of the harvesting ranged from 95.8% in heavily thickened rows with a large number of weeds, to 99.5% in areas with good agricultural techniques for maintaining plantings and it is economically feasible to use an electric platform with a yield of more than 30 c / ha.
