Robotic farms have allowed DroneUA to harvest several beans the size of beans, but the reason for the small harvest is only a lack of patience, the developers assure.

The Ukrainian company DroneUA harvested the first potato crop grown with its own robotic farms. This was announced by company representative Valery Yakovenko on his page on the social network Facebook.

“Today we harvested the first potato crop with the help of our robotic farms. The whole crop fit on one palm – just a few small tubers the size of beans. But they were grown without human intervention – and that’s why this is an achievement,” said Valery Yakovenko, specifying that the reason for the small crop is “simply a lack of patience.”

He also said that DroneUA is currently continuing to work on new lighting systems and plant care algorithms.

“Such farms and other devices without human participation in routine processes are the future,” Valery Yakovenko emphasized.

As EastFruit previously reported, California-based Iron Ox has announced the start of sales of vegetables and herbs that robots have grown. Founded in October 2018, the Automated Farm offers three varieties of greenery at the San Carlos Market Branch, a family-owned grocery store specializing in local and organic products.
