Trees and vines that get the proper care and attention can and will yield more fruit. In the table grape operation, the overhead trellis system allows the vines to capture the sun’s rays while creating a shaded environment for employees. Each acre of land is used as efficiently as possible by utilizing high-density planting methods which allows for a higher yield per acre, all while maximizing foliage usage, production and quality.
The Mandarin orange orchards are equipped with advanced weather stations to identify conditions 24-hours per day, with higher concentrations during the frost season to prevent damage. To minimize the effects of frost conditions, automated wind machines are activated at specific temperatures to protect the fruit. Fowler Packing engineers have designed and implemented a netting machine to efficiently net trees during pollination season to produce a seedless variety.
