Driverless Tractors And Robots: A Revolution In Farming

Posted by sainath on October 25th, 2018

Farm machinery manufacturers are offering driverless tractors and robots to individual farmers and corporate farming companies. Driverless tractors and robots automate the weeding and harvesting process. They use GPS and sensors and can be controlled using a tablet or a smart phone. These technologies are known to considerably increase farm output and decrease labor costs. For instance, according to a report by Goldman Sachs, automated tractors can raise farmer revenue by more than 10% and reduce farm labor costs. Companies offering driverless tractor and robot technologies include CNH Industrial, Deere, and AGCO.


Asia Pacific was the largest geographic region in the market, accounting for nearly half of the global market.
