Blue Pea Harvesting
Blue Pea Harvesting at Longford, Tasmania, January 30th 2007.

John Deere 9510 harvester with 30 foot (9 metre) open front.

The crop is on sandy soil & quite sparse in places (despite being under a centre pivot irrigator).

Looking back towards the harvester.

You can see the crop is quite sparse here. Other areas of the paddock the peas were nearly waist height, so it was very variable.

The aftermath of harvest; pea straw in the windrow, ready for baling & a reasonably clear surface, ideal for direct drilling into.

A closer shot, of the front. There are lifters fitted, to assist in picking up the peas.

Re: Blue Pea Harvesting
Yes, pretty ordinary Rony. Very sandy soil. Even though it was irrigated, the dry season has affected it. There was some spray damage too I think.
