On its face, crop harvesting seems ripe for automation. It’s physically taxing and highly repetitive — the kind of labor that’s often most effectively targeted in the robot revolution. But that’s not necessarily the case. Picking crops also requires manual dexterity and a delicate touch. Many fruits bruise easily in the heat, and leafy vegetables a...
If you’ve ever tended a personal garden, you’re well aware that weed control is both important and difficult. Commercial agriculturists know it too, but on a massive scale. Even when crop rotation is possible, many large outfits rely at least somewhat on the use of herbicides. But given the facts that plants can become resistant to weed killers and...
Instead of bringing agricultural robots to the field, one of the next great advances in farming automation will bring the field to robots. There are several startups helping to plant the seed for a robotic-greenhouse future. Not everything is growable in this way, but for certain crops the improvements are striking. These companies promise a dramat...
Aerial imagery can save farmers a lot of time by giving them a bird’s eye view of crops. This way, they can quickly get a sense of vegetation’s health, insect issues, irrigation layouts and weed growth. It even allows them to precisely determine how much pesticide the crops require. Farmers can use a variety of subscription services to access these...
