FarmWise turns to Roush to build autonomous vegetable weeders | TechCrunch

FarmWise will is self driving robots to do weeding. Roush will help to build prototypes of the self-driving robots. An early prototype is pictured above.

The idea is these autonomous weeders will replace herbicides and save the grower on labor. By using high-precision weeding, the robotic farm hands can increase the yield of the crops by working day and night to remove unwanted plants and weeds. After all, herbicides are in part because weeding is a terrible job.

With Roush, FarmWise will build a dozen prototypes win 2019 with the intention of scaling to additional units in 2020.
