Harvesting techniques

Finding the optimal logistic solutions for harvesting and collecting of vegetable residues. 

In this activity is sought for the most optimal logistic solutions for harvesting and collecting of vegetable residues. The solutions are tested on ecological, economical and social benefits.

Coordination: Inagro

Update activities 2017

The crops have been selected to investigate harvesting, with the purpose to determine optimal harvesting techniques with a view to possible end use. For these crops an overview of available harvesting techniques has been made.
Also the complete chain from growing tomatoes and peppers and techniques applied to the clearing of greenhouses and the end disposal of waste has been brought into clear view.

A start has been made to identify crop residue specifications, since harvesting machines need to be adapted dependent on the end use. In contact with machine builders test are prepared.
