Researchers and robots at Harper Adams University in Edgmond, Shropshire have planted, tended and harvested a field of barley without humans setting foot on the farmland.

Working with agricultural company Precision Decisions, the project used smaller-scale driverless machinery to enable more customized precision in farming. The current generation of harvesting and planting machinery inadvertently damages the soil and crops on farms.

The project, called hands Free Hectare, began with autonomous tractors drilling channels to precise depths for the barley seeds to be planted.The tractor was also used to plant seeds and spray fungicides, herbicides, and fertilisers and an automated combine harvester then harvested the field of spring barley.
