9.1 Hours of work and rest

Planting is heavy and strenuous work. Rest should therefore be taken for five to ten minutes every hour. Shade and shelter from rain and strong winds should be provided on the planting sites for use during breaks. If it is hot, work should be carried out during the cooler morning hours or in the afternoon.
