Robotic Company Iron Ox Now Sell Leafy Greens

Farming has always been a human-intensive-heavy labor. Robotic company Iron Ox aims to change that by making farming automated. The startup company which started last October, now sells a variety of leafy greens at Bianchini’s Market, San Carlos branch.

Despite claiming that their farming is “autonomous”, Iron Ox’s farming process is not fully automated. Humans are still needed in the job to plant the seeds, and the robots would be the one tending the plants. Then, the humans would pack the plants when they’re ready to eat. In other words, humans are still needed for a lot of work. But I guess, tending plants is one less thing to worry about, and this would be the first step towards fully automated farming.
