Satisfactory Essays
Harvesting pineapples is usually done by hand and assisted by machines which collect the fruit into hampers. Fruit yields can be up to 40 tons per acre. Although, the first ratoon crop will have lower yields around 30 tons and the fruit will be smaller. This reduction in fruit size and uniformity leads to the plants only being allowed to produce two to three crops on a pineapple plantation maximum. Then a new plantation must be located and prepared. After the harvest is done there will residue leftover in the field. To get rid of this residue it will be plowed up next time the field is being prepared for planting.
