Wild Rice Harvest – Emptying the Hopper
Once the hopper on the airboat is full it is taken to the bagging station to be emptied.
The Airboat gathers the ripe ‘kernels’ of wild rice leaving the plant intact.
This video shows you how the airboat skims across the water. The wild rice plants are left intact. The ripe wild rice kernels ‘fall’ into the hopper on the front of the airboat.
