Honest AgTech and Cleanlight

Level 5 autonomous crop protection powered by UV-C technology

Honest AgTech and Cleanlight have joined forces to further their autonomous crop protection system powered by UV-C technology.

Arjo van der Sluis of CleanLight: "With CleanLight, growers can combat mildew and other diseases with ease - no chemical applications necessary. Regular, low-dosage treatments ensure optimal crop performance. Take strawberry plants, for example; applying the treatment every two days during the day and night gives them optimal protection. With Honest autonomous robotics, you don't even have to lift a finger – get all of these benefits without any effort whatsoever!"

Maren Schoormans of Honest AgTech: 'We are proud to announce the successful deployment of our revolutionary autonomous mobile robot (AMR) technology – a powerful mobile vehicle for greenhouses perfect for enabling large-scale and efficient crop work, like harvesting tomatoes. The full potential of this solution has far greater implications than just its application within our own firm; thus, we are actively seeking out partnerships that can leverage it in meaningful ways. Our collaboration with CleanLight is a great example: they have been developing UV-C light applications since 2005– providing safe and effective crop protection across 40 countries worldwide. This partnership aligns perfectly with our strategy at Honest towards enabling robots capable of enacting many human-operated activities through automation now and into the future.'

"Honest's robots take greenhouse operation to the next level. Equipped with Level 5 autonomy, they can roam freely in any greenhouse environment—thanks to Artificial Intelligence features like pipe rail and obstacle detection! Plus, these bots are charged wirelessly, allowing you maximum convenience even when you're away. Through advanced sensors that detect its position and speed, our robot efficiently administers treatments to up to 10 hectares of crops per day."

Stop by Viscon Group's stand D-41 in hall 2.1 at Fruit Logistica in Berlin from February 8-10th to see the Honest UV-C robot and to get more information on how this technology works.
