Postharvest saving of labour for asparagus



Postharvest saving of labour for asparagus



Informatore Agrario 58(39): 63-66



A production line for handling asparagus spears is described and illustrated. It consists of a vibrating surface on which an operator places the contents of the boxes and discards any rejects, a transporter that removes small spears, a calibrator that sorts spears according to diameter, and a tying and levelling device that produces well matched bundles. In system A the bundles fall into a tank of water from which an operator takes them and arranges them in boxes of 40.
