Robotics in the Field
Steve Mantle Ines Hanrahan, Ph.D. Andrew Herr Vaughn Walton, Ph.D. Gary Thompson Joe Davidson, Ph.D.

As access to sufficient and affordable farm labor becomes increasingly challenging, growers are turning to fixed cost solutions to improve efficiency and decrease input cost variability. This session will explore developments in robotics to replace human labor costs associated with field operations, ranging from weed and pest control to plant nutrition, pruning and fertilization.
