The Future of Farming is here
2021 is a great year to be a grower. Farming automation has now arrived at a cost effective level and farming as we know it is going to change
hugely. Now is
the time to
your business with
cutting edge tech and stand back and reap the savings.
Drone capacity and battery
life have improved and prices
have come down. it is now more economical to replace your spray equipment with an autonomous spray drone than with conventional spray equiptment
We can come to your operation and show you how easy and cost effective the future can be.
AIGRO have now a supply agreement with US based DirectedMachines
AIGRO are pleased to announce that we will have a 45hp model fully autonomous tractor unit available for demonstration in late January. These fully electric units can mow and weed-spray simultaneously at a speed of up to 5.5km/h, with a work cycle of 7.5-9on/4hours charging. this will allow owners to gain two workday cycles in a 24 hour period without the need for a human driver.
Directed machines are a world leader in autonomous farm machinery and have an impressive pedigree in robotics and electronic controls. We will be demonstrating this tractor unit in January and Febuary around the country at locations to be advised. Check out the video below of the 27hp unit in action
T-series (spray) Drone compliance
The NZ CAA has now advised us that it may take up to 9 months for us to gain full compliance for our T-series agri-spray drones. This is a major change from previous expectations.
Because of this we have now vastly expanded our application to include almost all conceivable agricultural applications including night spraying, autonomous refilling, fertiliser spreading, and a host of other functions.
We will still be able to demonstrate function and effectiveness from late Jan onwards but only with the 10L drone with water/indicator.
I will prepare a mail-out after Christmas to update everyone on progress and ETA dates.

AIGRO Product Development
AIGRO AI Data Co-op
Our aim at AIGRO is to bring NZ farming into the future for less.
Our AI Data plan involves NZ farmers using cheap "hat-cams" worn by staff to capture repetitive decision making processes and extract the reasoning behind the choice. Growers can easily (its time consuming) collect the footage, add in the appropriate decision rules and then gain control of the data used for making AI learning/teaching protocols. IF you own the data, when the robotics/processing is available you are ready to go(in theory) ALL FOR $50 STARTING COSTS
- P2F Lending platform
AIGRO is currently developing a Peer-to-Peer lending platform to help farmers finance their operations both in the long and shorted term.
Farming is an ethical business to invest in, backed with physical assets and land. We hope that we can save farmers major interest charges and connect them to ethical thinking lenders who want fair returns for lending to industry that is both secure and ethical. NO MORE $5000plus COSTS JUST TO REFINANCE SMALL LOANS
FAVA is now operating or under development in a number of different countries around the world.
