During this module we will be exploring the process of crop harvesting. From identifying the optimum harvest window for a range of crops, right the way through to how to use mechanical harvesters safely. We will also look at the collection and storage options for harvested material immediately following the harvest process.
KEY CONCEPTS COVERED INCLUDE:
- Identifying the optimum harvest window for a variety of crops
- Understanding how mechanical harvesters are used to harvest a range of crops safely and efficiently
- Determining collection and storage options for harvested material immediately following the harvesting process
