Robot Farmers May Revolutionize Indoor Greenhouses

By Desirée Kaplan

Farming techniques have come a long way over the last few centuries, and new agriculture technologies continue to push boundaries. Despite advances, the farming community is currently facing several hurdles.

While there’s more demand for food, the farming industry is also experiencing a significant labor shortage as fewer people are joining the agricultural workforce.

While greenhouses can help grow food locally in small space, traditional greenhouse farming can be pricey.
