We partner with growers to protect crops, increase quality and enable a more sustainable future.

Thorvald, our multi-functional robot, safely protects your plants from powdery mildew using light treatment. It can also carry out a wide range of other repetitive, labour-intensive tasks on-farm to help make your season a success.

Introducing Thorvald

Through its modular construction, the Thorvald system is flexible and adaptable. The robots can be assembled to work with different crops, different landscapes and geographies, and different field sizes and layouts.
