Its not just light duty belt conveyors that are used in agricultural industry. It is more common to see heavy duty applications with tough belts.
Harvesting is a busy time of year and hard wearing belts for the washing, sorting and packing are required.

Get a good conveyor company in to assess all your needs and take the time to bespoke a conveyor system unique for your products, not just an off the shelf conveyor that may only do part of the process you require.
