AgroBots and Man

How cool is that? While you sit under the tree shade, legs crossed and arms folded while an autonomous machine ploughs your farm, plants your seeds, sprays the chemicals and harvests for you.

Yes we've reached that time when technology is the "thing" and it is so real. So, if it hasn't reached you yet, then I'm afraid you just have to watch it on the screen.

Since the beginning of time, man as a hunter and gatherer had always found a way to feed himself using crude tools like sticks, metals and carved stones of some sort to till land and grow food. That survival instinct in man is still the driver for the modern day advancements in technology. Curiosity, explorations, adventures and experiments have brought about sophistication in what man does, because man has got to eat to survive. From carved stones to metal hoes, cutlasses, ploughs, harrows, tractors and the combined harvester that reaps the produce, these machines have eased the toil of man because of the advent in science and technology. And now if anybody didn't know that humans have to input the instructions and push the start button, people would have thought that these autonomous machines control themselves, without much human interference because of their utmost precision.

The ever increase in the world’s population, the demand for more food and labor prompted man to dive deeper into technology and machine learning. Such advancement led to the manufacturing of agricultural robots. These robots are used to carry loads and deliver them, spray, pick and pluck, thin and prune, clean, sort and package almost any agricultural produce you can think of.

If you are thinking of ease, efficiency, time saving, reduced time and labor costs...and what’s even more fascinating, precision, all you need to do is feed the robot with information!
