FILE – In this Sept. 16, 2013, file photo, Sergio Garcia empties a bag of just-picked golden delicious apples into a bin at a Valicoff Fruit Company orchard near Wapato, Wash. Harvesting the vast fruit orchards of Eastern Washington each year requires thousands of farmworkers, many of them working illegally in the United States. That system could eventually come to an end as at least two companies are rushing to get robotic fruit picking machines to market. (Gordon King/Yakima Herald-Republic via AP, File)
