FarmDroid is the world’s first fully automatic robot that can take care of both sowing and weed control. With the FarmDroid robot we help farmers and plant breeders reduce their costs of sowing and weeding and we even do it in a CO2 neutral and ecological way.
The company FarmDroid ApS was founded in 2018 by the two brothers Jens Warming and Kristian Warming together with the Danish innovation environment Syddansk Innovation A/S and the acknowledged robot expert Esben Østergaard.
So far in 2022, the FarmDroid has already seeded and weeded 18.000 hectares spread over UK, Canada and large parts of Europe.
FarmDroid FD20 is a solarpowered field robot. It drives wholly on energy from solar panels, which make the operation of it completely CO2-neutral. Our robot revolutionize sowing and weeding by making it climate friendly.
With GPS technology FarmDroid sows the crops in the field and marks precisely where every single crop is placed. Subsequently it performs weed control both between the rows and in the rows, securing effective, precise, and non-chemical caretaking of the field.
The unique sowing precision enables the robot to clean the crops closely, thereby minimizing or even eliminating the need for manual weed control.
The four solar panels placed on top of the robot produce power for a battery package that ensures up to 24 hours daily and CO2-neutral operation of the robot. In this way, you do not need to charge the batteries externally. You can let your FarmDroid work in the field throughout the entire season with a clear conscience.
of crops such as sugar beets, onions, rapeseed, spinach, and salad.
extremely precise weeding ensures enhanced yield by reducing or even eliminating the need for hard, manual labor.
with GPS technology it knows the exact position of every individual seed that it has sowed, therefore it does not depend on a camera for crop or weed recognition.
as it knows the exact position of each seed, it knows where to weed without damaging the plant, and it can thus begin the weeding process before the plants have germinated.
because of its light weight.
it drives by itself, so there is no need for monitoring it.
it runs purely on solar energy.
it is easy to use and operate.

Our FarmDroid has seeded and weeded many different crops and the list of crops that it can handle continues to grow. Farmers have so far successfully used FarmDroid for vegetables such as sugar beets, beet root/red beets, onions, spinach, kale and rapeseed, and various types of herbs.
If you wonder whether FarmDroid can seed and weed a specific crop, please just contact us and we will be happy to find out.
One robot can seed and weed 20 hectares in a season under optimal conditions. By combining more robots, the capacity will be increased because they are able to work together on the same field or several fields.
Yes, absolutely! A FarmDroid can easily be moved between fields with different types of crops. It can also take care of one field with different types of crops – easy peasy!
Throughout the year we have regular demo days, where we show the FarmDroid in action. To learn more about when and where contact us or your nearest distributor.
We have FarmDroids running in most of Europe, so most likely we can arrange a demonstration nearby you.
