The walnut farming sector has transformed as a result of tree shakers, automated sweepers, sorters, scanners, packers, processors, and water stress sensors. The shaking process starts first. The tree is swayed, and the nuts fall to the ground. The nuts are then efficiently swept off the ground and into windrows that are roughly three feet wide by motorized sweepers that are located on either side of each tree.
Then they are picked up off the ground by a harvester, also known as a pickup truck, and separated into soil, sticks, and leaves before being loaded into trailers. They are much cleaner after this than what was picked up from the ground originally.
The nuts are then transported by truck to the huller, where they are cleaned, rinsed, and stripped of the 30 to 40 percent that still have the green husk attached. The nuts must be packed into large storage containers and warm air must be blown through them to reduce their moisture content to under 8%. This is the third step.
They can then be moved to the processing warehouse once they are stable enough. Once there, they can undergo additional processing, be cracked, packed, or any other necessary actions.
