Picker Harvesting Labourers [NOC 8611]

Tuesday, March 1, 2011

Harvesting labourers assist other farm workers to harvest, sort and pack crops. They are more commonly associated with harvesting fruits or fruit picking like an apple picker.


Harvesting labourers or fruit pickers perform some or all of the following duties:
  • Pick row and orchard crops
  • Sort, weigh and pack fruit and vegetables at farm
  • Load, unload and transfer crates, supplies, farm produce and products for transport
  • Clean up racks, trays, and growing and packaging areas.

Fruit picking is often done by migrant workers as they can be paid relatively low wages and usually do the job quite well.
