Contracting Services - Swing Arm Trellis

Now trading under 5 Crown Contracting - but here is how we have started out servicing the many dried fruit "blockies" of Mildura and surrounding regions.

Rodney Trigg comes from a 4th generation farming family and takes pride in supporting best farm practice techniques that ensure farms are sustainable, and with this in mind has grown his own dried fruit property into a working example of using these systems to their full extent through a contracting service that provides high quality results with the following services:

  • Cordon bunch removal

  • Leaf removal for better drying results

  • Mechanical cane cutting

  • Wetting

  • Fast 3 in 1 leaf removal, cutting and wetting for fast drying in minimal turnaround time (really important when weather is an issue)

  • Harvesting with Shaw Swing Arm trellis precision, maximum fruit with minimal trash or MOG (material other than grapes)
