Smart & sustainable weeding!

Our Weed Whacker robot provides a higher yield with less manual labour. Our solution contributes to less use of herbicides and in particular glyphosate.

Why choose Odd.Bot's Weed Whacker?

Better for the planet and your wallet

More yield

By removing weeds at an early stage, crops get space to grow, which improves yield.

100% organic

The robot does not use any chemicals and does not damage the crops.

On Demand

Pay as you go. You decide when the weeding needs to take place, we take care of the rest.

Save time

Get more work done with less man hours. The robot takes over manual labour.

A global challenge needs a bold solution

Common practice for farmers is to use chemical herbicides to kill weeds. The global market of herbicides is around $26 billion annually. Regulation will force farmers to pivot towards a more sustainable approach.

Team odd.bot believes that only a disruptive robotic solution can tackle this challenge. With our Weed Whacker we aim to save more than 170.000 liters of chemical herbicides in the next seven years.

Our Robot-As-A-Service is cost competitive. Therefore we will not only bring the solution for a more sustainable farming culture, but indirectly will also provide more people with healthy food at reasonable costs.
