LASSALLE Agnès ( Fruit growing, Peyrehorade - France )
I took over the family kiwi farm 3 years ago near Peyrehorade, in the Landes region of France, I produce yellow and green kiwis. I have a team of 6 pruners equipped with electric pruning shears, some of them on poles. The kiwi trees grow very high and it’s difficult to cut the branch you want using an electric pruning shear in your hand. With the pole it’s more obvious and you avoid neck pain, which is an advantage for working in comfortable conditions. Before, with the pole with the wire, it was more complicated to untangle and remove the old branches. Now, with the wireless pole, it’s more practical, we put it down and we have our two hands free to clean.
