Agricultural Automation

Our agricultural development and experimentation efforts focus on several key areas aimed at bridging the gap between the ethical and sustaiable practices of regenerative farming and the high output of monoculture and factory farms. Regenerative farming produces healthy and ethically raised products while replenishing the soil used to raise it. These practices combat the many issues with monoculture and factory farming which are generally inhumane to wild and domesticated animals while also highly destructive to local ecosystems and soil conditions.

Automation incorporating accurate and plentiful sensors, as well as AI and robotics, hold the answer to the majority of problems faced by independent farmers. Education in these disciplines beginning at a young age in rural and underserved communities will pay dividends to the health of the US population. More food will be able to be grown without chemical intervention which has several benefits to human health and the environment. Additionally, food will not need to be transported as far which also benefits human and environmental health. These technical and complicated skillsets have outcomes that are often highly motivational to students. When students can build, create, or program something, they become self-motivated to seek out additional education in things like math and other subjects that are not well represented in rural and underserved schools.
