Caelin Thomas's curator insight, March 26, 12:29 AM

This Article is about a farmer who has taken an age old method and revamped it using robotics. His new idea was is instead of using huge man driven machines, he would invest in smaller robots that can work all day and all night. These newer robots are also vastly more fuel efficient and allow the farmers to start working on a better quality corps. Perfect example of robotics helping in the workforce.
