Why is it important?

Crop seeding is a time-consuming and tedious activity, especially for large agriculture fields. Manually sowing seeds by hand is a highly inefficient process that requires a lot of human effort and can lead to health concerns for farmers, while spreading seedlings using tractors results in a high wastage of seedlings. This work describes the development of a low-cost agricultural robot for crop seeding.
