Shropshire farm completes harvest with nothing but robots
Although still in its infancy, automated farming is going to happen one day. As the article explains, the machines used will be smaller and more efficient than the monsters you see out in fields today. That means less damage to the environment from soil compaction.
Now if they can electrify all of those vehicles and have wind + solar with battery storage at the farm, I think we would be on to a winner.
