Ekobot AB has received the first indicative results from this year's field trials in Sweden. The results show that Ekobot's agricultural robot WEAI – autonomous weeder, greatly reduces the need for chemicals and gives the farmer an opportunity for increased harvest.
Ekobot is the only Swedish company in its niche, field robotics. During the 2022 season, the company has carried out cultivation experiments in collaboration with Almhaga Gård, Hushållningssällskapet and the Norwegian Institute for Bioeconomic Research (NIBIO). The field trials have been carried out in onion cultivations at Almhaga Gård, which is Sweden's largest producer of yellow onions. This week, Ekobot has received the first indicative test results. The final results from the trials are expected to be ready in September 2022.
