''Used to support new plants in the cultivation of fruit, and in vineyards, reinforced concrete posts are a useful and practical instrument for farms.
However, they become a problem during harvesting, when the plantations have to be substituted or moved to a different area of land.
The removal of crops is a complex operation, which often becomes expensive for farms as it produces a large quantity of refuse, both organic as well as that deriving from the cement posts.
