Turf field day offers chance to see – for the first time – automated turf mowing

Growers at this year’s Turf Australia annual conference in the Hunter Valley, which rolls-out next week, will be some of the first in Australia to see automated turf mowing in action.

Queensland-based Robotics Company, SwarmFarm at Emerald, has been working on the project with Turf Queensland and the prototype will be onsite at the field day held at AGTurf Lawn Solutions next Wednesday.

The demonstration will be the first time the robot has been in operation in public following the process of SwarmFarm converting one of its automated robotic platforms to operate a turf mower.

The platform is guided by GPS and eliminates the need for an operator on a tractor to mow turf paddocks and opens door for growers to be able to undertake the more menial of time consuming tasks on farm with a robot.

Don’t miss your chance to see the robot – which is expected to be commercially available to growers within two years – at the conference. Book your place now!
