A ROBOTIC SOLUTION FOR CUCUMBER HARVESTING

AUCURO is an add-on robotic arm solution for cucumber farming. Easy to integrate into the flyer, it is a cost-effective technology which helps increase productivity by reducing plant destruction during harvesting.

Why AUCURO?

It can be used flexibly to pick every cucumber without destroying the crop

We provide a simple and easy leasing possibility to the farmers saving costs

An add-on to the existing infrastructure of the tractor flyer and  hence can be easily set-up

The Robotic arms attached to the tractor flyer are used to pluck the cucumbers from the ground.
