College Students Invited to Enter Farm Robotics Competition

The VINE, an initiative of the University of California Agriculture and Natural Resources, the AI Institute for Next Generation Food Systems (AIFS), farm-ng robotics company, and the Fresno-Merced Future of Food (F3) Innovation coalition are inviting university or college students in the United States to participate in the Farm Robotics Challenge. The three-month competition, February 1 through May 13, 2023, asks student teams to address a production farming topic on any crop or size of farm, with a desired focus on small farms, by automating an essential farm-related task using the farm-ng robotics platform.
