ABOUT FARMDROID

FarmDroid is the world’s first fully automatic robot that can take care of both sowing and mechanical weed control. We help farmers and growers reduce costs of sowing and weeding crops while also doing it in a CO2 neutral and ecological way.

FarmDroid ApS was founded by Jens Warming and Kristian Warming along with Innovationsmiljøet Syddansk Innovation A/S and the robot expert Esben Østergaard.

In the spring of 2020, FarmDroid has sowed and cleaned more than 1.500 hectares in large parts of Europe.

THE AGRICULTURE OF THE FUTURE

HOW IT WORKS

FarmDroid FD20 is a solar panel driven field robot that, by using a GPS signal, marks the placement of the crops at sowing and subsequently performs mechanical weed control both between and in the rows.

The unique precision at sowing makes it possible to clean the crop up close and thereby minimize, or completely eliminate, the need for manual weed control.

The four solar panels produce power for a battery package and ensures up to 24 hours of daily CO2 neutral operation. Thereby, you avoid external charging of the batteries and you can let your FarmDroid FD20 work in the field throughout the entire season.

ADVANTAGES OF

Farmdroid


FULLY AUTOMATIC

sowing and weeding of sown crops, e.g. sugar beets, fodder beets, onions, and rapeseed.

PRECISE WEEDING ENSURES ENHANCED YIELD

and reduces or eliminates the need for hard and repetitive manual labor.

FD20 USES GPS TECHNOLOGY

GPS technology is used to know the position of every individual sowed seed and therefore, FD20 does not depend on a camera for crop or weed recognition.

CAN START THE WEEDING PROCESS BEFORE THE PLANTS HAVE GERMINATED

as the robot knows the position of the seeds from the sowing process and thereby knows where to weed.

DOES NOT DESTROY THE SOIL’S MICROSTRUCTURE

because of the robot’s light weight

SELF-DRIVING AND AUTONOMOUS UNIT

no need for monitoring

CO2 NEUTRAL

PROTECTS THE SOIL’S STRUCTURE

FAQ

Do you have questions? See if you can find the answer here in our FAQ section or contact us through the contact page. 

Which crops can the robot handle?

FarmDroid FD20 has already sowed and weeded a long range of crops and the list continues to expand. In 2020, the farmers have, among other things, sowed and weeded sugar beets, onions, beetroot, spinach, kale, valerian, flower seeds, and rapeseed. 

Do you have a crop that you wish to sow and weed using a FarmDroid? Contact us, then we will tell you if it is possible.

How many hectares can one single robot manage?

One single robot can in a single season sow and weed 20 hectares according to our specifications. Over a year with two seasons, the robot can thereby manage up to 40 hectares.

Do you need a higher capacity? Multiple robots can operate on one or more fields. 

Can one single robot handle multiple crops?

Yes! A robot can easily be moved between fields with different crops.

A single field can also be divided into smaller plots with different crops.

Where can I see a FarmDroid in action?

We regularly have demo days – contact FarmDroid or one of our distributors to hear more. Sign up further down the page to receive information about upcoming demos.

We already have many commercial robots operating and distributors in a long range of European countries. Therefore, we definitely have one near you.
