    I referred to this method of pruning in another thread and I knew there was a YouTube video of it somewhere.

    Found it!!!! :p





    I have also seen macadamia done this way too.

    Yeh, you and me both, Kate!
    I think we will have to do our pruning the old fashioned way!:sawwood:

    Here's more of that pruning footage taken up in the Kimberly.
    The first bit I think might come from Brazil where the drone flies above the crop and you can see it goes on to the horizon.
    Then picking in the Kimberly with the ute and trailer.
    Then pruning up there also.
    Then instructions from India.
    But the last bit of this video shows a market in some part of India.
    Its the size of the fruit that is of interest here. Just huge!
    Some would be 3-4kg each!
    Such a pity those genetics can't be brought to Australia.
    Unfortunately too much disease.

    That was very interesting! I liked how they store the mangoes in straw to ripen and that lopping machine is what I need!
