Fully automatic farming robot
a farming revolution
FarmDroid FD20 is a solar powered field robot that seeds and weeds. By using high precision RTK GPS, the FarmDroid FD20 marks the position of each plant at seeding and subsequently performs both inter-row and intra-row weed control.
Our FarmDroid FD20 platform offers an all-in-one solution that handles everything in plant production from harvest to harvest. Check out some of the features below:
High precision seeding
Our unique seeding system ensures high precision placement of each seed in the field.
Inter and intrarow weeding
The robot will mechanically remove weed in the row and in between each plants. It can also do blind weeding before the plants germinate.
It's never been easier to see access your farming robot remotely and see the progress. It will also notify you if something unexpected happens when it is working on the field.
Co2 neutral operation
With four solar panels, the FD20 efficiently converts sunlight into power for its two batteries. These panels boast a maximum output of 1.6 kWh. Depending on weather conditions and operational demands, this energy storage facilitates 18-24 hours of continuous work. Traveling at a steady pace of 950 metres per hour and with the capability to operate for up to 24 hours daily, the FD20 covers up to 6.5 hectares in a day.
We believe that precision farming is the future for a wide range of crops, and our commitment has driven us to constantly evolve and adapt. In close partnership with our valued customers and dedicated distributors, we’ve expanded the FarmDroid’s capabilities beyond its initial design.
The results speak for themselves. From our initial focus on sugar beets to the wide array of crops today, FarmDroid confidently ensures precision in both seeding and weeding.
Got more than what one robot can handle? No worries, the robot can be run as a fleet and can easily scale by adding more robots to handle your specific field size. Fields can also be transferred between droid so one could be seeding while the other is weeding.

Why not let a droid do the heavy lifting?
We know how hard work farming is
FarmDroid was developed with the purpose of automating weed control between the rows and in the rows close to the crop. In ecological agriculture weeding is often done through tiring and costly manual labor. The labor costs per hectare are high, the work is exhausting, and a general lack of manual labor makes it difficult for farmers to grow economically sustainable crops.
How it works
With FarmDroid FD20 sowing and weeding of crops is performed fully automatic – both between the row and in the row. Since FarmDroid sows the crops itself, it knows the exact position of every seed, and it thus knows precisely where to clean – and more importantly where not to clean! The robot is autonomous, it operates completely on its own and does not need monitoring. In case of any deviations, FarmDroid stops by itself and notifies the farmer that it has stopped. This ensures the farmer that the field work is done correctly.
