13 Innovative Companies Chosen for Global Harvest Automation Effort

May 21, 2021

13 Innovative Companies Chosen for Global Harvest Automation Effort Share Western Growers has selected 13 innovators for the inaugural cohort of its  Global Harvest Automation Initiative (GHAI) , a groundbreaking project that aims to automate 50% of specialty crop harvest within 10 years by accelerating the commercialization of harvest automation innovations, according to Growing Produce. Advertisement The companies chosen for the cohort all specialize in agricultural robotics, mechanization, and automation and will receive exclusive resources to help them launch and scale. This includes: Mentoring — Mentor support from leading ag and tech companies, including feedback on product offerings, strategy, and go-to-market options. Field Trials — Facilitation of field trials with growers. Case Studies — Success of field trials will be published as case studies which will be available to growers. Most importantly, the cohort will receive systems integration to integrate industry-standard components (called technology stack) into their product roadmap so their robots can get into fields and markets faster. “Most harvest startups build the entire technology stack themselves — from imaging and artificial intelligence to robotic end-effectors and automated movement up and down the fields. Western Growers’ Global Harvest Automation Initiative will now build this technology stack for them,” Walt Duflock, Vice President of Innovation at Western Growers, said. “The innovators in this cohort are both startups and established companies that will get help integrating with industry-standard tractors, robot arms, and sensors, which can commoditize up to 60-80% of the startup’s technology stack.” MORE BY GROWING PRODUCE The following are the innovation companies selected to receive hands-on support for all aspects of their businesses for rapid scaling: Advanced Farm Technologies:  Provides advanced farming tools, such as automated strawberry harvesting robots, for harvesting services. Antobot : Builds a team of small intelligent agriculture robots with advanced computer vision and robotics technology. Augean Robotics:  Helps solve the labor problem facing farmers by making autonomous collaborative robots. Earth Rover : Makes field robots that automate scouting, harvesting, and weeding, and provides farmers with per-plant data from seed to gate. FarmWise : Designs driverless tractors that use machine learning and computer vision, rather than herbicides, to eradicate weeds from farmers’ fields. FFRobotics : Develops a reliable, robust harvesting platform emulating human-hand picking process for efficient, cost-effective, and bruise-free fruit harvesting. Muddy Machines : Builds a new generation of field robots that help growers manage labor-intensive crops by conducting fieldwork. Oxbo International Corporation:  Designs, manufactures, and distributes innovative harvesting equipment and related products. Ramsay Highlander:  Original equipment manufacturer and custom manufacturer of design-built harvesting aids, mechanical harvesting machines and specialized harvesting machines for the vegetable growing industry. Ripe Robotics : Builds and manages fruit-picking robots. Robotics Plus : Enables sustainable growth of the horticultural and fiber industries through robotics and automation. Strio AI:  Automates labor-intensive tasks for specialty growers, starting with runner cutting for strawberries. Each innovator was selected based on market traction and potential for successful scale as well as feedback from Western Grower members and industry groups, including the Washington Tree Fruit Research Commission.
