This was SEAL’s second project with the municipality of Kferyachit. The first one included the successful installation of 320m cement canals in 2013. This time, the municipality purchased 13 olive harvesters and one olive screening/selection machine for $22,000. The project sped up and reduced olive harvesting costs by 25%. It also reduced damage to the olive trees which had typically previously been harvested by shaking and ‘beating’ the trees.
