After turning to bigger, faster and heavier machines on our own farms, we came to realise that bigger machinery wasn’t necessarily better. In a mad rush to become more efficient, we had lost sight of the best way to grow crops. We were compromising optimal crop growth, over machine efficiency.
To keep up with the growth in human population, more food will have to be produced over the next 50 years than has been during the past 10,000 years. At the same time, agriculture needs to reduce its impact on the environment and continue to develop sustainable production systems.
The challenge is huge.
We believe that robotic technology holds the key to new farming systems to increase yields while improving sustainability and environmental impact.
