Growing rice with robots tmsuk

雷鳥1号(remote monitoring robot)

tmsuk conducted its first harvest at a farm in Nobeoka City, Miyazaki Prefecture, which is practicing “WORKROID agriculture” using robot technology.

WORKROID Agriculture is a labor-saving agriculture that can be undertaken even by people with no agricultural experience, which is carried out by Temzak. Starting this spring, the company has been working on direct-seeding rice for rice flour by making the most of the development and introduction of the weed control and remote monitoring robot Raicho No. 1, the use of drones for sowing, and the operation of water management systems.

As a result, the labor hours required to grow rice were reduced compared to conventional farming, and each crop yielded just under 400 kilograms.
