Well this is the thread for you!
I am now working for my 3rd summer in a row in this industry.
First 2 years (our summer is over xmas, like your winter you yanks!) I worked in Maize/cornfields for a Seed company. They bred seed to sell overseas, and they pollinated all the plants from the male plants (which were allowed to shed pollen) to the female plants. SO this meant that all the plants that were deemed to be female had to be de-tassled so that they couldn't shed pollen. We walked every field every second day. Day after day after day. Yay. It paid for the Cervelo though!
This year I am working at a Plant Nursery for $3/hr more, with more varied work and a better atmosphere (corn field workers were tired from working so many hours in the sun)
I work with Maintenance half the time, so far we've put up 320 sq m of shade cloth, and been going through a large greenhouse clipping some other shadecloth together. I also make up the boxes that the plants get sent away in (hundreds of the damn things) but that's cool I get to use this big staple gun that runs on compressed air! And there's the potting machine which fills puts with dirt and puts a hole in it so you can just dunk that seedling into it. They are then chucked into trays and carted off to the houses to be nursed into healthy plants
So what do any of you guys do for ag?
