Prices range from about $60,000 to well over $100,000.  Serious cost for a blueberry grower, but with the problems of securing harvest hand labor they are becoming more of a necessity rather than a luxury.  I expect more growers to go this route in the future.  Not only will it reduce the need for hand harvest, but also it can reduce food safety issues (less handling).
