Specialty crops such as fruit crops are distinct from field crops and come with their own special machinery and fertilizing methods.
An exhibit in the AgroLiquid IQhub showcases some of this kind of special machinery. The specific machinery in the specialty equipment showcase are pieces that were once commonly used to fertilize orchards.
This orchard fertilizer exhibit showcases a 1967 John Deere 2020 Orchard Tractor and a 1967 John Deere Model 80 Orchard sprayer. The vintage tractor and sprayer sit on fake turf next to two sculpted apple trees with detailed replica apples to simulate an actual orchard. At the wheel sits a mannequin, dressed as a farmer in classic blue jeans and a collared shirt. A white picket fence encloses the display.
