– About the product

THE PRODUCT SHEET FD20

FarmDroid FD20 is an innovative field robot that helps farmers and growers reduce costs of sowing and weeding crops while also doing it in a CO2 neutral and ecological way. FarmDroid is the creator of a remarkable invention for agriculture; an autonomous light weight field robot that automates sowing and weed removal on farmland. This means that the soil is cultivated in an ecological and CO2 neutral way and without risk of doing structural damage to the soil because of heavy equipment.

AUTOMATIC SOWING AND WEEDING OF CROPS

Areas for ecological agriculture rise year by year and simultaneously the focus on reducing pesticides in conventional farming increases. Therefore, there is a continuously increasing focus on and need for mechanical weed control in agriculture.

FarmDroid FD20 is developed with a focus on automatizing mechanical weed control between the rows and in the row itself. This is, in ecological agriculture, most often done through tiring and costly manual labor. The labor costs per hectare are large, the work is exhausting, and a general lack of manual work force in agriculture makes it difficult for farmers to produce economically sustainable crops.

How it works

FarmDroid FD20 performs fully automatic sowing and weeding of crops – both between rows and in the row itself. From the sowing process, FD20 knows the position of every seed and therefore knows where it subsequently must clean – and just as importantly: where not to clean. It operates fully automatically and does not need monitoring. FarmDroid FD20 stops by itself and sends an SMS message to the farmer in case of any stops or deviations, and this ensures the farmer that the work is done correctly.

Setup of the robot is simple:

  1. At setup, the field’s corner points are marked. Any possible obstacles such as trees, power poles etc. are also marked.
  2. Choose the desired number of headlands.
  3. Choose sowing distance (distance between the crops in the row) and set the sowing depth.
  4. Press ”START”.
