Job Description

Full Time:
Yes
Number of Workers Requested:
2
Job Duties:
Jujube and waxberry farming require the same work tasks and tools as they are similar fruit trees: propagation, fertilization, irrigation, and pruning. The only difference is that jujube trees tend to need more fertilizer than waxberry trees. No experience is needed for this work and any instruction, tools, supplies, and equipment will be provided by the employer at no charge. Employees are paid the same wage for both jujube and waxberry farming as they involve the same work tasks and tools. It is not expected that workers will be weeding, but if the need arises, they will use long-handled hoes, 4 ft. or more in length, from a standing position. Workers will not be hand weeding, hand thinning, or hand hot-capping. Work Tasks and Tools A. Propagation. Propagation is cutting branches from some trees and grafting, or attaching, them to the root of a different tree to make the tree more fruitful and more tolerant to stress. Workers will be provided a grafting knife (a small knife to cut the root), pruning shears (farming scissors to cut branches), a mallet/hammer (to push the branches into the root), and grafting tape (strong tape that keeps the branch and root tightly together) as instructed. B. Fertilization Fertilization is applying nutrients to the trees soil to make the tree more healthy and grow more fruit. Workers will be provided fertilizer to pour on the soil under the trees at different stages of growth as instructed. No special tools are required. C. Irrigation Irrigation refers to monitoring and ensuring that the trees have enough, but not too much, water. Workers will water the trees by turning on and off the irrigation system that is already installed as instructed. No special tools are required. D. Pruning Pruning refers to cutting the trees branches at certain points as instructed so that the tree bears more fruit. Workers will use pruning shears (farming scissors) to cut small branches that are accessible from ground level.
