Arugga AI Farming

Arugga is developing autonomous ground robots for treating greenhouse plants, with the intention of reducing labor costs, which constitute 30-50% of growers’ expenses, especially with increasing challenges of unavailability and turnover of labor. Our ground robots will carry several modules, performing labor-intensive tasks as well as those of higher-skilled workers who are becoming scarce as well. Our first product, pollination of greenhouse tomatoes, will replace humans in countries where bumble-bees are banned or unavailable, and in the rest of the world replace the work of bumblebees, the most widely used pollination solution, solving their sensitivity to environmental conditions and pesticides, and preventing the spread of viruses.

Both our pollination solution as well as future modules, such as flower pruning, are designed to treat the plants without contact, thus minimizing disease spread within the greenhouse. In addition, by leasing our robots, growers will be able to save from day 1, by reducing their labor costs. Finally, with the sensors and cameras collecting data on a daily basis from all plants, we will be able to provide valuable insights and monitoring of numerous plant and environmental parameters currently sparsely sampled by the growers, and improve their practices.
