Thorvald platform

Where plant biology meets cutting-edge technology. Multi-functional and autonomous, Thorvald is transforming the scope of modern farming.

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

Thorvald safely protects your plants intelligently and efficiently. It can also carry out a wide range of other repetitive, labour-intensive tasks to help make your season a success.


No CO2 emissions during operation and reduced fungicides make Thorvald a clean, environmentally friendly solution.

Cost effective

Thorvald makes you less dependent on scarce labour and reduces the labour costs per hectare.

Modular System

Thorvald can be tailored to your needs, with a variety of tools being developed for more on-farm tasks.


Thorvald navigates autonomously using proprietary state of the art software and is operated via an intuitive, easy to use interface.

The Ultimate in On-farm Adaptability

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