Robots in the fields can bring new data to farmers

Techstination feature for Monday, May 9, 2022

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.     With labor shortages and rising food prices….can agricultural robots help to make a difference?   A company called Solinftec is expanding its partnership with Growmark to bring more crucial information to farmers.  Chief Operating Officer Daniel Padrao…

“So the robot, it is a device, solar powered, it will be a device that will be in the field, running 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, through the whole season.   So it will be there, I like to say, scanning the field, scanning plant by plant, scanning the eco system and giving different information through the season.”

Providing valuable information.  The new AgTech robots are expected to be commercially available for the 2023 season.
