on the Smart Farm
The DOT autonomous platform has seen significant use over the various fields of the Olds College Smart Farm and its partner Carson Agricultural Enterprises. So far, 3 fields from Carlson Agricultural Enterprises and 8 fields from Olds College have been either seeded, fertilized, or sprayed with the autonomous platform, covering over 2,200 acres of land between the two farms. Data related to in-field, fuel, and labour efficiency will be compiled and summarized in a future project update.
