WELCOME TO SWARMFARMING
Advances in robotic technology mean that it’s now possible to deliver a new approach to the production of food and fibre crops around the world.
SwarmFarming will enable new methods of farming that were never possible with traditional farming equipment.
Small, lightweight robots that traverse fields 24 hrs per day, 7 days per week, can pluck individual weeds out of the ground without using herbicide, or kill them, using microwave and laser technology.
The SwarmFarm robotic software and hardware platform has been developed from the “ground up” to undertake weed control in field crops but will be capable of delivering all six elements of any farming system – planting, weed control, insect control, fertiliser application, irrigation and harvesting.
In 2016, you will see the first generation of our technology working in grain crops, horticulture, tree crops, vineyards and sugarcane around Australia.
