Revolutionizing Agriculture: How Robotics is Streamlining Food Production

Agriculture, as the foundation of the food industry, has also embraced the use of robotics. Agricultural organisations are increasingly employing robots to streamline various stages of food production, including milk products, poultry, and grains.

Autonomous robots are being utilised in farming fields to perform tasks such as mowing grass and monitoring crop status. Other robotic systems are designed for tasks like egg or dairy collection to feed animals. These machines are capable of handling routine jobs, freeing up farmers from tasks that require precision and expertise.

Drones, also known as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), are being employed for aerial assessment of fields. Equipped with high-definition lenses and infrared cameras, drones can provide data on crop health, identifying which crops may require hydration or fertilisation. This technology is particularly useful for large-scale land management tasks that would otherwise take months of manual labour.

One example of agricultural robotics in action is T&G Global of New Zealand, which has implemented a robotic harvester that has the potential to revolutionise fruit harvesting. With increased harvesting efficiency, farmers now have reduced workloads and labour requirements.
