If we can seed it, we can weed it

When the automatic seeding and weeding robot, FarmDroid, was developed, its focus was to seed and weed sugarbeets. But since then, we have been working with farmers to use the robot for various crops and we continually test and add new types of seeds that the robot can handle.


What can the robot handle?

As of today, the robot has already been successfully taking care of:

  • Sugar beets
  • Red beets
  • Beetroots
  • Spinach
  • Salad
  • Parsley
  • Herbs
  • Onions
  • Rapeseed

Our R&D constantly works together with farmers and our distributors to test out new seeds. 

Here’s a selection of crops the FarmDroid FD20 has handled

We receive a lot of requests from customers to test out different seeds. That is why we test different types of seeds in our unique seeding system.

We get the seed conditions from our customers and then test different specifications eg.: if it should be seeded in portions, lines, or single which then affect parameters like seeds per group, group distance, row distance, etc. 

So far our lab results show good evaluation with the following crops:

    • Kale
    • Lovage
    • Dill
    • Yellow mustard
    • Brown mustard
    • Chicory
    • Chinese cabbage
    • Anise
    • Hemp
    • Chives
    • Lettuce
    • Salat Romaine Mini
