Where in the USA is the CoCo Locomoto? travel blog






These are the photos of them planting the almond orchard in Fresno. THe machine that does the majority of the work costs $160,000.00 and the GPS system costs $35,000.00. THe machine first makes furrows then digs the holes 4 feet deep. 2 men riding on the back of the machine poke the bare root trees into the holes dug by the machine. THe machine then covers up the holes. Pretty amazing technology. It will be at least 4 years before the trees become a paying crop!
