Autonomous seeding and weeding
Can the robot really do both seeding and weeding? Yes! The FarmDroid FD20 will take care of both seeding as well as inter-row and intra-row weeding.
FarmDroid FD20 is completely electrical and gets all its energy from four solar panels. This is not only good for the environment and your pocket – but it also means you never have to worry about charging.
High Precision seeding
FarmDroid FD20 has a “one of a kind” precision when it comes to seeding, due to its patented seeding system. It knows the exact position of each seed, making it possible to start weeding before the crops germinates, and thereby ensuring that the crop gets a head start to the weeds.
High Precision weeding
Inter-row weeding can be performed with a precision down to 10mm and intra-row cultivation down to 20mm. Since the FD20 continuously performs high precision weeding, our customers get up to a 40% increase in yield.
Minimal soil compaction
Soil compaction has been shown to destroy the soil’s microstructure and reduce yield up to 20%. Because FarmDroid FD20 only weighs 900 kg the impact on the soil is minimal.
Up to 24 hours daily operation
It might only move with less than 1 km/h. But the energy from the solar panels in combination with the FD20’s high energy efficiency ensures that it can run up to 24 hours a day or 6 hectares of daily seeding or weeding.
Seed and weed 30+ different crops and vegetables
“If we can seed it, we can weed it”. We have tested and designed seed discs for more than 30 different crops and vegetables. If we haven’t tested it, send us your seed sample and we will design a new seed disc for you.
Quick payback period
Due to reduced weeding costs and higher yield, our customers enjoy a payback period as low as 1 year! The average payback period ranges from 2-3 years, making it a risk-free investment. Calculate your ROI here.

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. See our compatible crops page for more information
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.
We recommend one robot for 20 hectares per season depending on weed pressure and seed density.
Do you need a higher capacity? Multiple robots can operate on one or more fields.
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.
We regularly have demo days – contact FarmDroid or one of our distributors to hear more.
We already have many commercial robots operating and distributors in a long range of European countries. Therefore, we most likely have one running near you.
