Asparagus is one of the most popular spring vegetables: Every German consumes an average of 1.7 kilograms of asparagus a year. The harvest of the tasty sticks is exhausting, time-consuming and costly. The agricultural harvest of the white poles begins as soon as the first shoots break through the crest of the dam. This requires skilled manual work. The asparagus spears must be dug up and "pricked". The hole must then be closed again. Traditionally, the asparagus season ends on St. John's Day, 21 June.

While equipment manufacturers and the giants in the construction space are working heavily on electrification, carbon neutrality and sustainability initiatives, smaller contractors have been reluctant to adopt change towards net-zero. The increasing regulatory burden requires resources many smaller companies don’t have. Equippo, the European leader in full service equipment marketplaces, has launched a tool for small contractors to make carbon neutrality easy and accessible and help achieve mindset change in construction. Going green should not be a burden, but a benefit — for construction companies and their clients. The tool is free of charge and will stay free of charge in a basic version. Read more >>
