The April issue of Mikroniek is devoted to the theme of Agrorobotics. The main theme articles include the Wageningen-led FlexCraft programme that addresses the challenge of agri-food variability by embedding more flexibility in robotic systems, and the design of the Sparter, the first selective harvesting system for asparagus (featured on the cover). In his editorial, Thieu Berkers, founder & CTO at Farmertronics, discusses his ‘bumpy ride’ from high-tech to agri-tech. The off-theme section of this issue – click here for a first impression – includes an interview with Stef Vink, the new director of the Leidse instrumentmakers School, about the new strategy, aimed at establishing a ‘New Modern National Vocational School’.
