Job Description

Full Time:
Yes
Number of Workers Requested:
3
Job Duties:
We plant corn, peanuts and cotton. We do all farming practices from pre-planting to harvesting. We operate farm machinery and equipment and various implements. Our tractors are equipped with guidance. Our practices begin early in the year with preparing the land to plant, including harrowing and plowing. We began to plant and sow the land in March and may continue the planting through the spring. The farming practices continue all year with eliminating weeds and insects that may infest the crops. The elimination spraying is done with heavy equipment. Irrigating the crops all year as needed is a common practice. Irrigation systems must be monitors while running, for unforeseen events. We have our own grain facility to store our grain commodities until they are ready to market. Common duties include cleaning and maintaining equipment every day to ensure equipment runs properly at all times. Maintaining equipment includes greasing, oiling, blowing filters out, fueling and cleaning. Common duties also include driving tractors and driving trucks to pull fuel wagons or service trailers where equipment is used. During peanut harvest season duties will include driving a tractor that pulls a peanut harvester. Harvesting corn requires driving a combine. Duties also include maintaining grain facility and the grounds around the facility to ensure truckers have easy access to load the commodity. Once harvest is over, duties will include cleaning and preparing equipment for winter storage. As owner, I can ensure all employees that they will never be given a duty that I will not do myself. Per state regulations, employer is exempt from CDL requirement for farm trucking. No commercial truck driving is required. Employer will pay a higher rate for longevity and experience.
