Robotization of food production has major advantages, reports Future Farming. Robots are light and make staff superfluous. People without any knowledge can use artificial intelligence (AI) to produce more profitable cucumbers than the most experienced growers. This was shown in an experiment that Wageningen University & Research (WUR) in the Netherlands conducted last year in a greenhouse complex at their experimental farm in Bleiswijk.
WUR researcher Isabella Righini cited this research at the Global Future Farming Summit, which was held in Wageningen recently. Experts there focused on precision agriculture and the robotization of food production.
