What is it about?

This paper focuses on the design & development of an agriculture Robot that is able to perform the mundane task of spreading Fertilizers. That is to scan the field and spray each plant with the fertilizer so each plant can maximize its growth, the process is repeated over a large agriculture field. The paper presents the design, configuration, programming, and deployment steps.

Why is it important?

Fertilizing the field is a time-consuming and tedious activity, especially for large agriculture fields. Manually spraying fertilizers by hand is a highly inefficient process that requires a lot of human effort and can lead to health concerns for farmers. This work describes the development of a low-cost agricultural robot for spraying fertilizers.
