THE FUTURE OF HORTICULTURE IS HERE

The only field robot capable of delivering net-zero farming

VISION

We're Changing The Way Farms Think About Labour

Our machines enable growers to grow more, produce locally and ensure that the food we eat is fresher and more sustainable. Our new category of field robots helps growers manage their labour-intensive crops by solving their biggest challenge, selective harvesting

SERVICES

We provide robotic farming-as-a-service and give growers a helping hand when they need it most

PRECISION
HARVESTING

Our asparagus harvester uses cutting edge AI to measure every single spear, cutting the ripe ones delicately whilst avoiding the immature spears, leaving them behind for another day.

YIELD PREDICTION

While Sprout's vision system is measuring everything it sees, its brain uses advanced algorithms and reinforcement learning to predict crop yields over the coming days and report them to growers.

INTELLIGENCE DRIVEN

Our company name alludes to the challenging conditions our field robots face. Using 3D cameras combined with deep learning and a host of other sensors and algorithms, Sprout makes sense of its environment avoiding obstacles and hazards in the field.
