FarmBot is an open-source, automated farming system designed to help individuals or small-scale farmers grow their own crops with precision and minimal manual labor. The FarmBot project aims to revolutionize agriculture by combining robotics, automation, and data-driven farming techniques.
FarmBot consists of a robotic gantry system that moves along tracks or raised beds. This system is equipped with various tools and sensors for planting, watering, weeding, and monitoring crops. One of the main advantages of FarmBot is its ability to perform precision farming.
It can plant seeds with exact spacing, apply water precisely where needed, and even identify and remove weeds without the need for chemical herbicides.
