Used machines for Asparagus

Asparagus are plants whose young shoots are eaten as an exclusive vegetable. The colour of the asparagus - white or green - depends on the cultivation method. White asparagus are grown underground, while green asparagus get their colour from exposure to sunlight.

Machines can be used to enable a variety of asparagus cultivation and processing operations to be executed mechanically.

The automatic grading of asparagus, for example, saves manual labour and results in a higher consistency of quality. In other situations machines simplify and assist physical labour, such as the various machines that make it easier to harvest asparagus.

The following machines are used for cultivating asparagus.

Hill makers for asparagus ridges

Asparagus cultivators create ridges in the soil around asparagus plants, called ‘asparagus beds’. These ridges coax the shoots upwards. The shoots can then be harvested before they reach the surface.

Plastic foil laying and winding machines for asparagus

Asparagus fields for white asparagus are covered with plastic foil. This has two purposes: to heat the soil to accelerate plant growth and increase yield, and to prevent asparagus from growing above ground and turning green.

The foil covering the asparagus fields must be removed after harvesting, for which a foil winding machine can be used.

Asparagus washing machines

An asparagus washing machine with brushes and water can be used to efficiently clean asparagus. Asparagus washing machines are also equipped with a blade to cut the ends off the asparagus at a uniform length.

Asparagus grading machines

An asparagus grading machine ensures that asparagus are sorted according to length, thickness, colour, shape and/or irregularities. The grading machine is, in most cases, installed in the same line as a washing machine to enable the asparagus to be washed and sorted immediately after harvesting.
