In the horticultural/agricultural industry, farmers are looking for convenient and cost-effective ways to harvest their crops but also to reduce time and costs with cultivating their fields and disposing of trash and debris. Farmers not only harvest but they also clear their land, prepare it for a new crop, and plant the new crop.
Row crop farmers have a choice of machinery to use that will increase their productivity and reduce labor and time spent on activities that don’t grow their profits such as tilling, rock removal, plastic removal, etc.
Row crops produce organic waste or debris that requires removal after harvest and prior to the new crop being planted. The old plastic mulch film also needs to be removed prior to forming a new bed and for these processes Rocca Industries have engineered and manufactured horticultural/agricultural equipment to get the job done and get it done fast and efficiently.
One important aspect of row farming is having to remove the organic material left behind after harvest, namely, dead vines from watermelon crops, dead plants such as strawberry or other berry types that grow on the ground, pumpkin and other squash type crops, tomato, peppers, canteloupe, eggplant, cucumbers, etc. All of this crop debris or crop waste needs to be chopped close to the plastic and removed to allow for a fast and clean removal process of the plastic film mulch from the bed. Rocca Industries sells it’s own machine, the ROCCA M940 vacuum bed mower for mowing the row bed and then vacuuming the waste away.
Rocca Industries also engineered and manufactures the PMR—01, -02, and -03 Plastic Mulch Retriever that retrieves/lifts the plastic film mulch off the crop bed and collects the plastic film on a spool to be easily opened allowing the farmer/worker to drop or dispose of the bundle efficiently.
Farmers are experiencing higher costs to harvest their land but challenged by an economy that doesn't keep up with the sale of the produce, and as a result are finding more efficient and cost effective ways to harvest their land, this is where Rocca Industries addresses the effort of farmers world wide.
