How do the harvester operators work?

The harvester operators follow a set schedule based on the historical prevalence and location of weeds.  Although they typically adhere to a regular “route”, picking up where they left off the day before, this route may vary depending on operator discretion.  They also focus on floating weed masses caused by boat propellers or that come in from the Canal, and thirdly, on known dense areas of weeds.
