Picking and collecting fruit and nuts in orchards is strenuous and labour-intensive. Moreover, the sales prices are often not high enough to compensate for the labour involved. For this reason it is more common nowadays to remain the fruit in the orchards so that it is not used. In order to counteract this negative development, the Natur- & Geopark Mëllerdall organises a demonstration of harvesting machines. Various systems in different price categories will be presented to facilitate the work in the orchards.
The demonstration will take place on Friday, 1 October 2021, at 3 pm in Boursdorf (P0704732). Farmers receive 2 practical hours as part of the LPP (subsidy for the maintenance of the landscape). If you are interested, please register in advance at firstname.lastname@example.org or 26 87 82 91-21. In case of bad weather conditions, the event may be cancelled at short notice. In this case, the registered participants will be informed in good time.
