Barnaby, BC – Advanced Intelligent Systems (AIS) announced it has partnered with AgriNomix, a leader in horticulture automation for the North American market, according to a press release. AIS will work with AgriNomix to create solutions for nurseries and greenhouses faced with labor-intensive tasks, as AIS’s autonomous robot provides nurseries and growers experiencing acute labor challenges with automation solutions.
“We are very excited to partner with AgriNomix to provide a solution for nursery and greenhouse growers to make their operations more efficient and productive with BigTop, our unique autonomous robot,” Afshin Doust, CEO of AIS, says.
“Our client base is desperate to fill open headcount," Robert Lando, founder and president of AgriNomix says. "They just can’t find people for these labor-intensive job openings. AIS is laser focused on providing practical, cost effective robotics that can be put to work in the very near term to fill a gap that will only grow."
At Cultivate’19, AIS offered demonstrations of the BigTop autonomous robot as well as another prototype, the “pruner,” that can trim plants, expanding BigTop’s features.
The need for labor in the horticulture industry has been steadily climbing. Finding workers to perform the repetitive and labor-intensive tasks necessary in nurseries and greenhouses in the horticulture industry is extremely challenging, and those workers employed in this work can often experience repetitive stress injuries. AIS’ autonomous robot provides a solution, according to the release.
