One of the most important problems in chamomile field production is mechanizing the process of harvesting. Numerous technical solutions for chamomile harvesting machines have been created as an attempt for solving this problem. This study presents the results of research into the basic machine working parameters for two types of chamomile harvesters in the Republic of Serbia. A comparative analysis of working exploitation parameters of these two harvesters was completed. Based on that analysis, we determined directions for future development of these harvester types. Further improvements of chamomile harvesters should include working speed, efficiency and achieving better quality of harvested product.
