AGRIST starts introduction of automatic cucumber harvesting robot at Takamiya farm
Cutting-edge farms incorporating technology
AGRIST Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as AGRIST, head office: Shintomi-cho, Miyazaki Prefecture, CEO: Junichi Saito, Yuki Hata), which develops agricultural robots, is preparing temporary equipment such as scaffolding in line with the harvest of the next crop from 2023 to 2024. Cucumber at Takamiya Farm in Hanyu City, Saitama Prefecture, operated by Takamiya Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as Takamiya, Headquarters: Kita-ku, Osaka, Chairman and President: Kazumasa Takamiya), which provides solutions that support the construction industry as a comprehensive platformer. Introduce an automatic harvesting robot.
This time, Agristo will start introducing an in-house developed automatic cucumber harvesting robot at Takamiya Farm, which cultivates cucumbers, in line with the harvest of the next crop from 2023 to 2024.
Takamiya is conducting demonstration cultivation in Takamiya’s new greenhouses “G-Castle Neo48” and “G-Castle ProI” that can improve the yield and quality of agricultural products. Targeting fruit vegetables such as cucumbers, strawberries, and mini tomatoes, we are conducting demonstration cultivation of cultivation methods to increase yields and cultivation systems to grow high-quality crops. In addition, the vegetables grown there are sold on the EC site as “Takamiya’s Aisai”. Aisai of Takamiya https://www.takamiya-aisai.jp/
What is a cucumber automatic harvesting robot?

The automatic cucumber harvesting robot moves with a highly stable self-propelled model in order to harvest more cucumbers weighing more than 100 grams each. In addition, AI recognizes and judges the image obtained from the camera mounted on the robot and performs the harvesting operation.
A suction type harvesting hand is used for the harvesting hand, and it is equipped with a function that harvests without damaging the cultivation environment or crops.

In the development of harvesting robots, it is important not to damage the environment or crops. By repeating trial production and testing of the harvesting hand, we determined the harvesting method suitable for the robot, sensors and their placement, etc., and harvested only when the position of the cucumber was accurately grasped, thereby preventing damage to the cultivation environment and crops. We are reducing risk.
By introducing a harvesting robot, we would like to reduce the burden on workers and contribute to the realization of more efficient agriculture.
Since cucumbers grow quickly and a large amount of time is spent on harvesting, there is an urgent need to resolve the labor shortage. Therefore, the introduction of an automatic cucumber harvesting robot is expected to reduce the burden on workers and contribute to the realization of more efficient agriculture.
In the future, the automatic cucumber harvesting robot will be based at Hanyu Farm, and will solve agricultural issues toward the realization of sustainable agriculture that will continue for 100 years.
