Abstract

Agriculture is just one step in the supply chain that leads to the table of the consumer. Just as automation has brought down the price of electrical goods by reducing the manpower involved, so is the price of agricultural production being reduced. Although electronic games are a luxury, food is a necessity that must be produced at all costs. We therefore need either more farmers or more ways to produce food with limited manpower (Figure 1). The robots are coming to the rescue.
