Ekobot is at the forefront of the development of the Autonomous Field Robot for Mechanical Weed Control.
The evolution of agriculture

The evolution of agriculture

Ekobot is the result of the founder Ulf Nordbeck’s thoughts and desire to combine robotics and healthy sustainable food production. Ekobot’s goal is to be able to offer practical and sustainable solutions to agricultural issues while reducing workload with autonomous tools for vegetable farmers.

Ekobot WEAI

Ekobot robotsystem WEAI combines front-end technology in the areas of AI, robotics, electromobility with traditional knowledge of classical agricultural production. The result is an autonomous system that can replace existing methods and at the same time increase productivity and profitability in a sustainable way.

As we see it – the evolution of agricultulture

Ekobot is one of the world's foremost weed robots in the field of mechanical control. Ekobot works with an extremely high precision, which is especially important in rows of vegetables.

Weeding challenges

We know that Weeding is one of the most time consuming and energy consuming tasks in agriculture today. We also know that although herbicides can be used effectively to control weeds, it is estimated that only a small proportion of herbicides reach their target and the rest of them get lost in the surrounding environment. This causes not only economic losses but also chemical hazards and pollution risks.

Our solution

At Ekobot, we open up new opportunities to control weeds and reduce herbicide use. With Ekobot’s robotic system for weeding, you as a customer can, compared with traditional methods, reduce your costs and reduce your business’ environmental impact from weeding operations.

This is how our mechanical system for weeding works

Why choose Ekobot?

A reduction in the total costs

Ekobot makes it possible for you as a customer to reduce the very variable cost of manual work and reduce the use of herbicides. Manual labor for weed control is often a vegetable grower’s largest cost and often amounts to about 30% of the total expenditure in the cultivation calculation. Reducing the cost of manual labor and herbicides has a major economic impact.

A significant increase in yield and quality

Ekobot’s robotic system leaves soil microbiology undisturbed, unlike. Reduced use of herbicides and reduced soil disturbance pave the way for a regenerative approach, leading to healthy crops and higher yields.

Use of regenerative farming methods

Traditional chemicals used by farmers, such as herbicides, degrade soil health and are linked to human and other mammalian health problems. An autonomous mechanical weed management solution reduces or eliminates your herbicide needs.

An economic path to sustainable agriculture

One of the biggest challenges for sustainable agricultural production is cost-effective weed control. A solution for weed management that does not require herbicides or an increase in manual labor paves the way towards sustainable agriculture with products of high economic value.
