Development and worldwide sales of automated asparagus harvesting machines
Cerescon is a young, rapidly developing high-tech startup that develops, produces, and sells automated asparagus harvesting machines. Today, the manual harvesting of asparagus requires intensive labor; a process that Cerescon wants to improve by means of automation.
Cerescon is the first to have successfully proven the feasibility of automated harvesting. In close cooperation with Wageningen UR and a number of large asparagus farmers, the company is testing a functional model. Cerescon received innovation credit from the Netherlands Enterprise Agency, amongst other funding.
