Successful test season, harvesting machine for white asparagus ready for use
In April of this year, AvL Motion in Westerbeek made a ground-breaking announcement: the very first autonomous harvesting machine for asparagus is now a reality. The company made the announcement before the upcoming asparagus season, so with plenty of time to test the machine in the field. “We’ll only launch the machine on the market when we’ve ruled out any risks and we’re sure that everything is functioning exactly according to plan,” said Arno van Lankveld, owner and founder of AVL Motion, in April of this year. So how are things going with the autonomous harvesting machine?
