Feb 21 - Intensive Arable Production

Onions are dug and placed in rows then picked up with a tractor pulled harvester.

Visited an onion factory and learnt of some of the effects that a wet season can have on onion quality.

Also visited a carrot factory where carrots are converted to juice concentrate and exported to countries which reconstitute, to save on freight.

Visited a large seed handling factory which processes many varieties of grass and vegetable seeds to eliminate impurities and measure germination rates
