Partnering opportunity

Seeking partners for technology applicable on minimal pepper harvest machine


A Korean SME has been a company developing a state-of-the-art platform to employment for working in the farm since established in 2015. As the company specializes in recruitment in the field of agriculture, they already obtained the farming network. Furthermore, they wish to develop technologies for pepper harvest machine which is customized to proper circumstances partners to collaborate in the development under license, research cooperation, and commercial agreement with technical assistance.

Technical Specification or Expertise Sought

Domestic agricultural machinery companies are on-going development of pepper harvest machines, but the functions still need to be improved for commercialization. If the machines are commercialized successfully, they would be spread in the field of pepper cultivation, so the company would like partners to have an idea to develop and improve the existing functions.

Partner sought

- Type of partner sought: SME, Large companies, Research Institute - Specific area of activity of the partner: Partners should be interested in agricultural equipment with improved functions - Task to be performed: Under license, research cooperation, and commercial agreement with technical assistance, partners should perform tasks for pepper harvest machines to be minimized with effective functions to reduce rate of loss, labor costs, and time of works


A Korean SME specializes in recruitment in the field of agriculture by creating a novel job, such as ‘Coordinator in farm’ and development of new technologies to make agriculture work effectively and productively. Pepper harvest machine is their majority to be focused on development. As pepper harvest machines become smaller and are customized to proper circumstances for cultivation in open field, the company expects the effect on the rate of loss and production, costs, and reduction of labor costs. The company came up with the idea because labor costs in the field of peppers are occupied of 17% among the total running fees which are the second highest rate after utilities (as of 2017). Also, the cost of employees is increased by about 9.9% compared to last year and 46.6% of total work time is used for harvest. These eventually result in increasing demand for machinery and automation. Thus the company is open to taking the partnership under license, research cooperation, and commercial agreement with technical assistance for collaborating in applicable technology development on pepper harvest machine.
