This is Joanne on the beast. She was such a cool, clever girl. Wow! She is one of 3 female and of course lots of males doing this particular job at the moment. One you have to be smart, able to ride a quad bike well, be strong, methodical, partctical, drive a car with a trailer, back a trailer, secure a bike on a trailer after riding it up onto a trailer etc etc. I am in awe. I love it when someone proves girls can do almost anything!
Front view. These machines can do this job so accurately. Using our orchard GPS map, a computer on the bike; a GPS reader on the bike , and regulated speed the pollen is applied evenly over the whole orchard. She arrived with 5 seperate measured jars of male pollen for our 5 blocks. ( scans the bar code as they are used )
