In 1999 the sons of a Belgian azalea grower set out to make robotic equipment to sell to other growers. They began with the “Degraplace”. A mobile pot robot, self-propelled through the cropping area, for setting plants down on beds. The same robot can pick up the plants for moving elsewhere (trimming / spacing). More than 75 robots with a width of 1.5m up to 12m are successfully installed.
