There are serious concerns about the ongoing shortage of hands-on labor in agriculture, primarily in North America and Europe.

High numbers of injuries on the job add to this problem. Today, an absence of workers is pushing up wages and straining profit margins.
Clearly, the agricultural sector is ready for a disruptive solution that conclusively addresses these issues.
That’s why we’re heading into the age of the autonomous agricultural robot.
