Agricultural robots are machines that help farmers with various tasks on the farm. This includes tasks such as planting, watering, and harvesting crops. These machines can be autonomous or controlled by a farmer. The use of agricultural robots is becoming more common as farmers look for ways to improve efficiency and productivity on the farm. Agricultural robots can help to reduce labor costs, increases crop yields, and decrease the amount of time needed to complete tasks on the farm. In addition, agricultural robots can help to reduce the amount of human contact with pesticides and other harmful chemicals. This is important because it can help to reduce the risks of exposure to these dangerous substances. As the use of agricultural robots becomes more widespread, it is important to ensure that these machines are safe and reliable. This is essential to protecting the health of both farmers and consumers.
