The Case For Automation
Reducing labour, wastage & costs
The current manual harvesting process
is both labour intensive, expensive and
wastes as much as 45% of the crop.
A Brief Description
Developed over the last 10 years by KMS Projects, RoboVeg is believed to be the most advanced selective, automated broccoli harvesting solution in the world.
Harvesting with RoboVeg
Operating the machine
RoboVeg was developed with grower needs
at the heart of every design decision.
The team worked with UK and overseas growers; the BGA and the AHDB.
What's more, the lead Engineer came with
first-hand experience of growing cauliflower.
The result? An automated broccoli
harvester capable of operating 24 hours a day without tiring, cutting broccoli heads which exactly match customers’ specifications,
reducing growers’ reliance on manual labour
and cutting harvesting costs significantly
Flexible Rig Design
RoboVeg has been designed as a modular machine and is therefore supremely
adaptable. The current prototype is a single module pre-production rig.
Benefits to Growers
Reduced costs, improved production control & management information
RoboVeg has the potential to significantly reduce manual labour as it is designed
to be operated by one person and run
for up to 24 hours per day. Working for long periods with consistency would improve growers’ ability to control production costs.
Improved uniformity of harvested products
will reduce pack-house and logistics costs
and affordable night harvesting when ambient temperatures are lower will improve shelf-life and product quality and could reduce refrigeration costs
