Company description
FarmWise is building adaptive autonomous robots to farm every plant, every day for greater yield, better margins, and a healthier environment.
The $17Bn US vegetable farming industry is facing great economic pressure coming from the growing demand for chemical-free food and the recent drop in farm labor supply.  In addition, to help compensate for the increasing labor shortage, FarmWise's autonomous robot is the first system capable of looking at each plant individually and tailor its action to their specific needs. By unlocking the potential of each plant, these robots are creating a more productive and more predictable farming paradigm. 
FarmWise has developed the first prototype of its robots, already starting to weed California's farms by looking at and acting on each plant with a purely organic weeding process, thus providing farmers with a superior alternative to existing processes in the field.
