This looks to me like some sort of picking line -- where workers remove foreign matter, sucker leaves, discolored / diseased leaves, etc. The machine on the right in the background looks like it could have been a redrying machine. Redrying is one step the tobacco undergoes in a processing plant. Blending, picking, threshing, redrying, and prizing (packing) was the order in the two plants where I worked as a foreman in the '80s and '90s.
would be tobacco processing plant
