Blue River Technology

Blue River Technology, a pioneer in the use of computer vision and robotics for agriculture, is developing an alternative to chemical-intensive agriculture, which is both expensive and hazardous to the environment. With breakthrough computer vision techniques for identifying weeds and selectively killing unwanted plants, Blue River Technology’s equipment is significantly more efficient than traditional methods of weed elimination. Its automated solution is particularly well-suited to organic agriculture and for fields with chemical-resistant weeds.
