The workers will help to clean the areas around greenhouse and float beds ( mow and weed eat) to keep from debris, and keep the plants trimmed back by using a lawn mower on a track system that is pushed and pulled along the float beds to trim plants until time to set them. During the setting process, workers will ride a four row setter, feeding the tobacco plants into rubber shoes, that insert the plants into the ground. This process requires long periods of sitting and loading plant tray s from wagons, onto the setter. Workers will rotate following the setter on foot to check for plants that may have fallen out or gotten missed and replanting them, by hand. Workers will "chop out" the tobacco , this involves walking the rows, with a garden hoe, and chopping the weeds out from between the plants. Topping involves walking the fields of rows, and breaking off the top couple of inches of the tobacco plant that blooms out. Cutting/spiking/hauling - workers will use a tobacco knife to cut the plants at the bottom of stalks and piling them into sections of (6) plants, then going back to place those plants onto wooden tobacco sticks using a metal spike, then standing the stick up in the ground. After 2 or 3 days, workers will haul the sticks by loading them onto wagons/trailers, then hanging the sticks into large barns, that are sectioned off by tear poles. Workers must be able to lift 50 to 60 pounds, repeatedly. Stripping- workers will take down the sticks of tobacco in the barns, remove the stalks, and place in piles; workers will remove/tear the leaves from the stalks, learning to grade into (3) piles by color and looks, then bundled into large burlap bags, tied, and tagged with numbers for baling. Workers are expected to bundle /tie up their tobacco sticks, discard empty stalks onto wagons, and be responsible for their bags, plastic and cleaning up the barn after stripping. Workers will help with the baling process, by putting the leaves into large baling machines that compress tobacco into bales and weighs them. Workers will do basic farm jobs( cleaning, fencing, mowing, weed eating, etc. ) during the between times of tobacco process, to help ensure their 3/4 guaranteed hours of their contracts. Lifting 50 to 60 pounds, climbing, walking, bending, and repeated movements are ALL requirements of tobacco labor workers.
