Small Robot Company is reimagining farming to make food production sustainable. Using robotics and artificial intelligence, we have created an entirely new model for ecologically harmonious, efficient and profitable farming. We call this Per Plant farming.

Farming is in trouble
The overwhelming feedback from farmers is that farming is not working. Yields are stagnating, machinery costs are rising, and profit suffering. We are also facing an environmental crisis, with heavy machinery and chemical use playing a key part.

Optimal yield, maximum profitability or a thriving environment – in farming to achieve at least two of these generally results in compromising on the third. Per Plant Farming will enable global food production to achieve all three with no compromise.

Per plant precision agriculture is kinder to soil, kinder to the environment, more efficient, more precise and more productive. It’s the best of all worlds. An increased yield, as well as minimal chemical usage.

The use of robotics is rapidly developing in agriculture, with large and small autonomous vehicles becoming commercially available.

The agri-tech sector is vibrant and growing, with many exciting companies, organisations and networks are working to develop agri-tech solutions.

AgriTech 4.0 focuses on supporting farms and farmers in providing them knowledge and assistance on the key aspects of the evolving technologies, processes, and practices being developed and used for sustainable farming.    

A range of digital technologies promise to transform agriculture, including sensing, robotics, artificial intelligence, wireless networks & IoT, big data, decision support tools, modelling, digital twins and precision farming. 

Precision farming involves the use of GPS, sensing and control technologies to use spatial data to manage soils, crops and livestock.
