Australia: Robotic Revolution for Farming Now Here
The robotic revolution in agriculture is here, writes Travis King on FarmWeekly.com/au, and it is accessible, according to a pioneer of robotic farming, Andrew Bate, SwarmFarm.
Bate farms at Emerald, in Central Queensland, in a family farming operation that grows 1620 hectares of cereals with a mix of summer and winter crop and feedlots 2000 head of cattle.
This commercial farming operation has played a key part in Bate’s move to develop the use of robots in Australian agriculture.
He had a captive audience at the recent SEPWA Harvest Review at Esperance where he told a room of farmers about the journey he has been on in developing robotic farming technology.
