Overview

Are you overpaying your harvesting crew? In “Paying Fruit Pickers Per Pound” (2013), Growing Produce reported that one grower overpaid his pickers by almost $20,000 one week because bucket weight totals for blueberries (estimated) exceeded warehouse weight (actual) by 40,000 pounds. With the FairPick system, accurate pick weights could result in significant payroll savings for growers.
