Harvesting grass and luzerne
Before mowing, weed or hatched, Hartog assesses the quality of the crop (grass or lucerne).
The following requirements are laid down for the crop:
- It should be of good quality. It must look fresh and green
- There are no poisonous herbs, such as Jacobaea vulgaris and St. John's wort, in the crop
During mowing, weeding and hatching, care is taken to ensure that no contaminants are taken, for example, crops that have been landed for long periods may not be dried.
Hatching of grass and lucerne
The crop is chopped with a chopper. By chopping, the grass or the lucerne is made small.
All the little-made grass or lucerne then has approximately the same length, which allows it to be evenly dried. The chopped product is sprayed onto the land in the Hartog container box and transhipped onto a truck using a hook-arm system. Then it is transported to the grass dryer. On arrival at the truck the container cars are weighed separately. During the drying process, the chopped grass or luzerne is poured into the square. Each party gets its own number so that eventually all parties are traceable at any time from the beginning of the producer to the end at the consumer.
