Cutting-edge mechanisation

Automation of asparagus harvesting has been a long-time challenge because of the delicate nature of the crop.


Cerescon has now developed the first selective harvesting solution for white asparagus, called the Sparter, which both reduces harvesting costs and significantly improves quality, as explained in this Mikroniek article. What is characteristic and distinctive in the design is its underground detection of asparagus, using a box of probes that is attached to the machine through a well-thought-out suspension, while the design of the Sparter robot features an ingenious actuation concept.
