The Digital Farmhand Platform

The Digital Farmhand is the new intelligent robot being used by commercial vegetable growers to produce fresh food in a sustainable way. It’s a solar-electric autonomous robotic platform with on-board intelligent sensors and implements. It will inform your decisions, manage your weeds, spot spray your crops and cultivate as needed.

Crop Intelligence

Your Digital Farmhand delivers real time reporting as it moves around your farm. Gain insight into the performance of a single plant or the whole crop as data is captured and fed directly into your own system, or presented on a dashboard. The Crop Intelligence system can be added to your Digital Farmhand platform, or attached to existing farming equipment.

Easy To Use

Set up your work schedule for the day and send your Digital Farmhand into the field. With our user-friendly controls, select the area of your farm that needs attention and assign tasks to the Digital Farmhand. Whether it be removing weeds or collecting data, the Digital Farmhand will report back to you at the end of the day on the health and progress of your crops.
