As the world population continues to grow, feeding the world is becoming more challenging for farmers. The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) projects that the agricultural sector will need to increase its food production up to 60% by 2050 to feed 9.3 billion people. Aggravating this world food supply concern are other agricultural challenges: the undermanned farming fields, and the growing clamor for sustainable farming — which calls for farming processes that are environmentally sound.
But despite all these ever-changing agricultural requirements and challenges, the fact remains that farmers feed the world, and they will try to continue to increase food production to meet the demand.
But farmers no longer need to keep working in difficulty to meet their goals. In today’s modern agricultural era, automating agricultural processes is the best way to respond to these setbacks. This is where Bear Flag Robotics’ expertise in advanced automation systems comes in.
Your Success Is Our Business
At Bear Flag, we aim to contribute to bringing ease to farmers’ lives by bringing a catalyst for change in agriculture through farming automation – specifically through automated tractor fleets.
When Bear Flag works with clients, we are giving not only automated equipment, but also insightful data. Our automated tractors provide them with information on how their farming operations are progressing, as well as details about their soil, field conditions, and fuel efficiency. Through our tractors, we are providing farmers with awareness on previously unobservable or intangible phenomena and farm health, turning these situations into understandable information.
Farmers can also delegate the field work to autonomous tractors, thereby addressing current concerns on workforce availability in the agriculture sector and lessen the time that farmers spend on laborious tasks. The end result: farmers can continue feeding the world through productive and efficient farming operations.
Through our automated tractors, we aim to provide a huge impact to global food production in the long term.
