Rowbot Systems

Small, autonomous farm machines

Rowbot-powered services increase profits for corn growers, who spend less on nitrogen fertilizer and get higher yields while improving their environmental stewardship.

Rowbot Systems is an early-stage company focused on disrupting agriculture by introducing a small, autonomous platform (a Rowbot) that will reduce costly inputs, like nitrogen, while maximizing farmers’ profits. Our initial focus is to enable growers to work cornfields when corn is too tall for tractors or the ground is too wet for large equipment. Rowbots will permit precise control of inputs, thereby maximizing crop yields and reducing waste.
