Common practice for farmers is to use chemical herbicides to kill weeds. It is a fact that herbicides are bad for humans and species, especially for bees. Biological farmers and a small portion of traditional farmers do choose to remove weed manually, but the process is labour and cost intensive. Furthermore it becomes harder to attract personnel for manual labour.

Odd.Bot is building a disruptive robotic solution that can save more than 170.000 litres of chemical herbicides from nature in the next 7 years. With their bold ambition they aim to contribute to a more sustainable farming culture.   - Martijn Lukaart (The Netherlands)
