The FR 38 Special harvester is the specific solution for harvesting Valerian salad and similar vegetables

Valerian, which is widely grown both in glasshouses and on the field on sandy or medium-textured soils, is a particularly delicate type of vegetable that requires the study of specific measures to ensure optimal harvesting without deteriorating the produce.

DE PIETRI has designed the FR 38 Special harvester for maximum optimisation when harvesting Valerian salad. The patented mowing bar that allows a clean, precise cut, the self-adjustment of the cutting height and the soil residue elimination system are all features that guarantee excellent end results without produce waste.

The FR 38 Special is a very versatile harvester; in addition to harvesting Valerian, it can also be used with other vegetables with similar characteristics.
