What is FarmBot?
FarmBot is an open-source computer numerical control (CNC) agriculture farming system. FarmBot contains a Cartesian coordinate robot farming machine, software, and data repository for documentation modifications. This machine farms with precision as it sows seeds, waters according to plant age and type, and weeds. FarmBot supports an educational experience in STEM subjects such as robotics, agriculture, and biology. This program is brought to you by a partnership between Coles County 4-H and Elevate to develop a new agricultural farming experience through FarmBot.
