Public Profile

A current and developing problem faced in the food supply industry is the limited availability of people actually to harvest food crops - in short, as an industry, farms are experiencing serious labor shortages. This translates into a limited number of available options for the grower: increased cost to hire the requisite personnel, leaving crops (eg tomatoes) in the field and rotting on the vine, or completely shutting down their operations. Organized arround next-generation farming technologies, Four Growers Inc has first addressed the challenge of developing harvesting robots for greenhouses - starting with the harvesting of tomatoes ... solving this problem by creating a solution that provides both automated harvesting and plant analytics. reducing the production costs of greenhouse growers through robotics technology. The firm's positioned to become the automated solutions provider for greenhouse crop management. Working closely with various greenhouse growers to develop a tomato harvesting robot, the firm's technology relies on two layers of protection (1) patents filed protecting the physical design of the robot and (2) a proprietary algorithm that controls the robot's decision making. The developed solution is not only capable of harvesting the tomatoes, but also of performing a quality check and packaging.
