New Orchard Lift Gives Workers A Boost

Event Details





Orchard workers could find life a lot easier with a new orchard platform just getting to work in Hawke’s Bay.

Corporate growers T and G have imported three of the platforms from Italy to work mostly on their new two-dimensional orchards in Hawke’s Bay.

A two-dimensional orchard is one where the tree growth is trained along wires so the fruit is easily visible and easily picked. It also simplifies thinning and pruning.

Two of the platforms are at work on blocks at Puketapu and the third is at Baker’s Bridge orchard, a 22ha block on Tukituki Rd near Haumoana.
