Agri-droid web background-01.png

The FarmDroid FD20 is an autonomous field robot controlled by precise GPS technology which undertakes both sowing and weeding in and between rows.  

The FarmDroid is an entirely self-sufficient robot driven by two batteries that are powered by solar panels making it a carbon-neutral machine.


Agri-Droid is a family run business headed up by Shropshire-based brothers Chris & Ed Brettell. Founded in 2021, Agri-Droid is the official distributor of the FarmDroid FD20 in the counties of Shropshire, Staffordshire, West Midlands, Worcestershire, Herefordshire, Powys, Clwyd and Cheshire. We are proud to have brought this innovative robot to the country, including using it to grow our own crops with great success.

Advantages of the FarmDroid FD20

✔ Autonomous operation

Automatic sowing and weed control.

✔ Weeding in the row

Resulting in a significant reduction of manual work.

✔ CO2  Neutral

Energy supplied by solar panels and stored in batteries.

✔ Herbicide-free

Purely mechanical weed treatment, the ability to begin weeding before plants are in rows thanks to the GPS technology, not reliant on crop sensors.

✔ Short payback period

Between 2-3 years and maybe less with grants becoming available!

✔ Soil-friendly

The structure of the soil is maintained by a low machine weight of 900 kg and you can start weeding far earlier than if with a tractor due to soil conditions.
