About this event

Details:

Join the Grove (Western Fair District), and Haggerty AgRobotics, as they host an in-field demo at Heeman's Greenhouses in London!

Haggerty AgRobotics, a local company focused on solving challenges in crop agriculture with the implementation of AgRobotics and The Western Fair Association, a regional agricultural society supporting the ag-industry through its people, activities and facilities are coming together to showcase the practicality of modern robotic weed management systems. To overcome the chronic farm labour shortage of ever-increasing demand for food, many agricultural companies are launching, developing and experimenting with a wide range of robotic systems for various agricultural applications. Increasing use of milking robots, automated harvesting systems, unmanned aerial vehicles, and other robots also boosts the various agricultural services. This rapid adoption of innovation in digital technologies on the farm helps farmers to boost yields, reduce costs and put more money in their pockets.
